Turquoise may be the oldest known stone in man’s history. It has been prized as a symbol of wisdom for thousands of years, and Turquoise beads found in Iraq date back to 5000 B.C. The Egyptians were known to have mined the stone around 5000 years ago, and even the death mask of Tutankhamun was studded with Turquoise. The stone is also considered sacred in many Chinese cultures.
Turquoise has long been coveted by American Indians, who believe that it connects the mind to the infinite possibilities in the universe. They have mined and fashioned the stone for nearly a thousand years, and have traditionally used it to guard their burial sites.
The color of Turquoise is affected by how much copper it contains (blue shades) or how much iron (green shades), although it is sometimes found in other colors. Tibetan Turquoise, or Chinese Turquoise, is green and carries a slightly different vibration from the more vivid blue. It is especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra.
Tibetan Turquoise is traditionally received as a gift to pass on its natural fortune-bringing powers, so if you buy your own, make it a gift to yourself!
