Aurospecs was a trade-name for frames (or goggles) that featured Kilner screens as their lenses, first offered for sale by Harry Boddington and the London Psychic Educational Centre in the 1930s. According to the advertising copy, the lenses were neither coloured glass nor gelatine, but "optically perfect glasses cemented together, enclosing a specially compounded solution of alcoholised dicyanine," thus having a limited life-span, as the chemical dyes would evaporate and lose colour over time.
The London Psychic Educational Centre and the Psychic Stores later sold a product that was essentially the same under the name of Kilnascrene (Kilnascrene Glasses), promoting them as a tool for the development of clairvoyance.
