Turquoise Crystal Healing Properties
Turquoise is believed to be a stone for finding wholeness and truth. Also, it is thought to aid in the communication and manifestation of those qualities. It represents the wisdom that comes from all of life’s experiences. It reminds us that wholeness can only come when we are willing to embrace the totality of who we are and what we have learned. This crystal is a stone of self forgiveness, self acceptance and the release of useless regrets.
History and Uses
Turquoise is a 16th century French name “pierre turquoise” meaning Turkish stone. It was bought in the Turkish bazaars on the trade route from Iran, where it was mined, to Europe. It comes in a range of blue to green hues. The blue colour indicates a higher copper content. Meanwhile, green colour is associated with zinc or iron impurities and very light blue to almost white stones have higher aluminium concentrations. This crystal has been revered by many different cultures throughout history. Including, the Egyptians, Persians, Aztecs, Native North and South Americans. Tibetans and Chinese have been cited to use it as long ago as 5,000 BC. It has been regarded as a power stone, bringing protection from accidents and good fortune. Native Americans believed it to connect them with the great spirit of the sky, helping their minds to become one with the Universe and its infinite possibilities.
Turquoise is a copper aluminium phosphate mineral with a hardness of 5 to 6. Good quality Turquoise can be found in Iran, Afghanistan, Australia, Tibet and the South-western United States.
From my heart and my wholeness, I speak my truth with clarity, certainty and love.
