Turquoise is a beautiful stone that appears in a stream of heavenly colours - from aqua blue to light azure green
. It has a pure and uplifting energy, like clear waters in a most ideal natural setting.
The beauty of turquoise has been highly prized for centuries in various cultures - from Persian and Egyptian royalty to Native People in Americas (North, Central and South America).
Sadly, nowadays turquoise is widely affected by either imitations or severe treatment. As the blue colour
of turquoise is so attractive (and healing), the market is flooded by turquoise jewelry and beads that are far from being genuine.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT TURQUOISE?
Because of its heavenly energy, turquoise is believed to provide not only protection from any negativity, but also a clear connection to the purity of natural elements, especially water and air.
The water energy in turquoise can facilitate a better flow of energy in one's body, thus promoting a gentle detoxification and improving the state of one's immune system. Turquoise works beautifully with lapis lazuli
, as both stones bring a pure sea-to-sky energy that is needed for one's growth and overall well-being.
Turquoise can also help one receive higher guidance and direction, as well as live life with more joy and happiness. The calming and uplifting colour
of turquoise can bring peace and higher energy to any relationship.
WHERE DOES TURQUOISE COME FROM?
Most of the turquoise on the market comes from Southwestern US, Australia, Chile and India.
