More About Turquoise:

Turquoise is a stone of ancient wisdom and instills patience. It enhances your ability to think things through before rushing forward if the path ahead is still unclear. Work with this stone if you need to take time to find clarity and fill any gaps in your knowledge before making rash decisions.

Turquoise is a soft, sky-blue stone that has often been connected with heavenly realms and air energy. Often what is sold as turquoise is a “fake,” either a dyed piece of howlite or even low-grade turquoise which has been ground up and reconstituted. Usually with the help of binders and dyes. Watch a video here, which will provide a good introduction to spotting real vs. fake turquoise.

The beautiful Turquoise has been treasured by people all over the world since prehistory. The oldest known pieces of jewelry are the four turquoise bracelets found on the mummy of the Egyptian Queen Zer.

A lot of Turquoise is found in the southwestern US, where it has traditionally been a valuable trade item. Some First Nations tribes, such as the Dine, consider it an especially holy stone, and it is incorporated into their symbolic and spiritual cultural practices. For example, Turquoise Boy and Turquoise Girl are said to be magical people who reside in the mountain and help the Dine people.

Turquoise Lore:

People have always treasured turquoise for its beauty, as well as for bringing good luck and health. One story from the Egyptian Papyrus of King Snefru (4700 BC) tells of a day when the king was in a bad mood. So he arranged for beautiful maidens to row him around the palace’s lake. The king was just starting to enjoy himself when one of the rowers lost her turquoise hair decoration in the water. The maiden was distraught, and the king wasn’t too happy either. So then the court magician, Zazamankh, spoke some magic words that divided the waters and brought the gem back up safely into the boat. This story shows how much turquoise was valued.
