Dicyanin Dye

A friend of mine recently told me about some substance called dicyanin dye that supposedely allows a person to see the astral plane and other people's auras. He said that this dye was tested by the Germans in the 30's or 40's and then by the United States but it became banned and is now impossible to find.

So what's the deal on this chemical. Does anyone else have information on it? Thanks.

There seems to be some confusion as to whether dycanin, or dycyanine should be used. There are reports that both work:
dycanin EINECS # 243-897-6
dicyanine (MSDS) EINECS # 257-795-4
It looks as if no one makes dicyanin anymore, however, Fisher Scientific sells dicyanine. (Do a product search for dicyanine at the website to find it.)

I particularly enjoyed the music and images at this site.
