The use of Turquoise dates back to ancient times. In the ancient tombs of Egypt, queens have been found decked from head to toe in turquoise jewelry. It was considered the “Stone of Life and Protection,” Egyptians believing that burying their royalty in turquoise jewelry would keep their soul alive and protected after they left their body and continued to the after life. Native Americans have also long worn turquoise bracelets and jewelry as a powerful healer and protector. Turquoise is also considered sacred in many Chinese cultures.
Turquoise is a gemstone of well-being, a Master Healing stone, that helps to strengthen and heal the entire body. It is believed to be the energetic bridge between Heaven and Earth. Native American cultures believe that Turquoise and turquoise stone jewelry helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the universe. Turquoise jewelry holds the vibration of Mother Earth, emitting energies of love and healing, helping you to believe in yourself. It works to align and protect all the chakras, which strengthens the overall body in the process. Wearing a turquoise bracelet stimulates and harmonizes the throat chakra, making communication and the articulation of your thoughts much easier to come about. It helps to release old beliefs and vows, so that you can express yourself more freely, calming your nerves while speaking in public.
Due to this gemstone’s heavenly energy, Turquoise stones and bracelets not only provide protection from negative energies but also bring the energy of the purity of natural elements—especially water and air. In terms of Feng Shui, Turquoise stones are used to bring the water element into the home. They are also used for attracting wealth and money and to improve your health and well-being. Turquoise stones also bring calming, uplifting energies, making it a very beneficial gemstone for children’s rooms, your home office or living and family rooms. If you are looking for a wealth cure, place your turquoise stones in your money area (southeast bagua area). To improve the health and well-being of your home, place your stones in the East bagua area. If you are going through some tough or challenging times in your relationships, try placing a few turquoise stones in your bedroom.
