Turquoise jewelry dates back in time as one of the oldest known gemstones.
Besides being a beautiful stone, Turquoise also resonates on an energy level, and has even deeper meaning to many astrological signs. Know as the gemstone for those born in the month of December, Turquoise is also linked to those born under Aquarius.
Originally, Turquoise was found in Turkey, for which it was given it’s name. However, large amounts of turquoise have been mined in North America and is considered a holy stone by Native Americans providing protection against harm. It was considered a symbol of wealth in ancient times. If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.
When working with turquoise in jewelry, I love pairing it with rich, chocolaty shades of brown for a Southwest, organic feel. It’s also great paired with coral, tangerine or key lime to give a piece a fun, tropical flair! If I close my eyes, I can see the colors of the Caribbean, smell the salty air of the ocean and hear the sounds of the steel drum, all adding to the inspiration I have working with Turquoise.
Here’s a few other tips Turquoise can help with:
- Neutralizes over-acidity

When combined with copper the power of turquoise increases giving the wearer maximum benefit.
