Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets and in many ancient cultures was a symbol of wealth and prosperity. It is the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or light brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
Our product is 100% genuine. We DO NOT add fillers to our product to give artists the impression that they are getting more bang for their buck, so the quality you see is what you get! A “filler” allows the product to be listed as 100% natural, but it does not mean it’s 100% of the stone you expect to see (Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Mother of Pearl, etc.). You can see clearly from a photo of the product you are purchasing when there are large amounts of “matrix” or other natural rocks mixed into the product which gives the crushed stone you are buying an unclean finish. Our product has been handled with the utmost care to ensure that you will have a show worthy product by the time you are finished crafting with our material.
This has been energetically cleansed, grounded and charged through a variety of practices including Reiki, Crystal Grids, and Sound Healing.
Metaphysical descriptions and healing properties of stones or crystals are not meant to replace medical advice or treatments. Ingesting the stones can be dangerous based on each stones individual toxicity. Please use common sense and as safety precautions (such as keeping them out of the reach of small children) when using these gifts from the earth.
