I love Turquoise! One of my most favorite gemstones out there. I love the colors, sooo vibrant and looks great with anything. Whenever I go to Divisoria or Quiapo to shop for beads, I make sure to grab several pieces of Turquoise in different shapes and sizes.
The most valuable Turquoise are large, hard, perfectly polished, with bright robbin egg blue color and has no inclusions.
•Inclusion - In mineralogy, an inclusion is any material that is trapped inside a mineral during its formation
But I like the ones that has inclusions. The strong color plus tiny black lines work very well with gold and silver links.
Do you believe in the Healing Power of Turquoise?
Since ancient times, people believed in the Healing power of various gemstones. They have been credited to have healing power or bring luck and even change the course of one's life.
Here's what I gathered from the net about the healing power of Turquoise:
This stone is most famous as an amazing over all healer for illnesses in the physical body and mental/emotional issues.
This gemtones is an ancient absorber of "negativity" and protection from the "evil eye." It is said to bring wisdom and truth. When worn on the skin, it can easily change color from perfumes, oils, soaps and perspiration. It is believed to also change color when the wearer is ill or when danger is present. Turquoise is sensitive to strong sunlight. It protects one on all journeys, near, far, spiritual or physical travels. It is a great stone for astral travel. It offers the mental and spiritual clarity to see your own path in life.
Turquoise are also given to women for creating a sense of happiness and contentment, as well as for men to guarantee power and success.
Folk Remedies: Sympathetic to all maladies, this stone is the great immune booster. Like amethyst, it protects and detoxifies from alcohol, poison, pollution, x-ray/sun radiation. Helps anorexia, headache and fear. Treats the throat and lungs for issues of asthma, infections, teeth, TMJ, hearing, high blood pressure, creativity block and depression. It is used for muscular/skeletal pain, backache, arthritis, whiplash and post operative recovery. Used also for stress related skin disorders. If you are sick, Turquoise helps to put you at peace. A great anti-inflammatory stone.
That sounded really nice. I guess there's no harm believing in them, right? So next time you buy your jewelry/accessories, buy yourself anyting that has Turquoise stones.
