Turquoise the Gemstone of December, but not only....

Turquoise.......I'm sure most of us have some turquoise jewelry. A bracelet, ring, necklace, earrings, it's one of the most popular stone. It adds a pop of color to our outfit, bringing a welcome brightness to a basic, everyday wardrobe. It also lifts the spirits and promotes well-being by energizing all chakra centers. Looks fabulous and heals the heart. Good for the soul and the body, its balancing and brings peace. There is so much  information on this gemstone, I just point out a few of them.

Turquoise will give us strength, when we are exhausted, or depress. If you give a turquoise to someone - by a loving friend, that stone willprotect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship and also brings peace to the home.

It is worn by men and women alike. It is used also in sacred prayer beads, adorns musical instruments, prayer wheels and bells.

If the Turquoise found its way into our life, it’s a sign that you’re in need of its healing powers. Like a multi-vitamin for your soul, the Turquoise crystal is a gem when it comes to giving you a charismatic glow that comes from a renewed sense of self-confidence. 

  • This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.
  • The turquoise is the birthstone of those who born in December.
  • Usually it's used to celebrate the 11 year anniversary
  • If placed on the throat chakra is releases inhibitions and allows the soul to express its self again.

The name comes  from the French, Pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone”, because the trade routes brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia that went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars. 

Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in Sinai. The best turquoise comes from Iran, but not much is exported now. Much turquoise comes from Mexico and the United States today. The ancient Egyptians used turquoise in jewelry.

Here's an interesting historical note, the vibrant and distinctive colors of the Turquoise crystal stone adds a pop of color to decorative facades of holy sites, including the Taj Mahal in India. Ranging in shades of blue-green depending on its copper and iron content, the Turquoise crystal meaning is the brilliant color that evokes the image of dazzling waters surrounding an island paradise. Similar to Emerald, this crystal symbolizes the oceans that flood the earth’s surface. But what makes this gemstone stand out is its natural pattern of spider webbing, or others display spots of brown and black matrix patterning it's thanks to deposits of iron oxides.  

It's interesting what it does in the workplace. Turquoise promotes leadership, assists in relocation or regular travel associated with career, and helps avoid unwise investments. It helps overcome writer’s block, and is a stone of clear communication when giving information an especially good amulet for those who work in the law. This gem  is especially recommended for accountants and computer operators for mental relaxation, for those who work in radio or television, to release anxiety. 

 Turquoise is also a very good stone that stimulates and harmonizes the Throat Chakra, making it easier to articulate and bring forth one's deepest wisdom. The stone also empowers those who are shy and aids in the knowledge that’s in speaking, from the wholeness of our being, we each have something important to contribute to the collective.

I can continue writing about this beautiful gemstone, you can find them in my store, as I feel this is one of the "must have" pieces in your collection, you will find all kind of unique pieces and not expensive at all. Enjoy while exploring and know that every Gemstone is a bit different, there almost aren't two stone the same.
