It is known that crystals, due to their atomic makeup, hold heat and focus light energy, the often used example is quartz crystals being used in watches to generate an electric charge. Beyond this, it is said that crystals and gemstones have different energies that can be used to enhance your own energetic vibrations. Each gemstone is known for its unique 'energetic' properties.
Properties: Wisdom – Growth – Protection – Strength – Reflection - Nobility
Turquoise is a crystal of purification, a talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It dispels negative energy and can be worn to protect against outside influences, injury and atmospheric pollutants. It balances and aligns all the chakras, starting with the heart, throat and brow and will stabilise mood swings, bringing inner calm. It is excellent for depression and exhaustion and is a symbol of friendship.
Tip: Turquoise is often porous, with the ability to absorb liquids and oil. Once absorbed, these liquids can damage the crystal or alter its colour.
Historical Uses/Folklore: The earliest record of turquoise being used is from Egypt where it has been found in royal burial sites over 6000 years old. Sacred to Native Americans and brings good fortune and peace and is placed to guard burial sites. The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning ‘Turkish stone’ because trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia, travelled through Turkey.
