Turquoise is known for its use in Native American jewelry but can also be found in other cultures around the world. This beautiful stone has been found in many colors from a lovely pale, almost white blue to the striking bright blue that it is most attributed to being. It can range from being relatively inexpensive to extremely expensive depending on the origin/mine and age of the piece. It is often replicated by dying other stones to mimic it and even reconstituted. Reconstituted Turquoise is simply manipulated by man but doesn’t affect the metaphysical properties. All varieties of Turquoise are very soft and should be cleaned and polished with extreme care!
Metaphysical properties: Turquoise is a powerful healer and has been used for years by healers across many cultures. This stone has a very strong protective quality and is often used for amulets to ward off evil. It can be used as a purification stone and has been known to help stabilize ones mood. Great stone to use with Throat chakra work.
