TURQUOISE: Turquoise is known for its blue-green color and often has veins running through it, adding to this stone’s character. It is by far one of the oldest stones known to man and has always been seen as a symbol of strength, protection, and good luck. For almost 1,000 years, the Native Americans have mined and carved this stone as a guardian for their burial sites, and many master healers and shamans wear it as a sign of protection and wisdom. During travel, turquoise protects against theft and is even used to adorn animals to prevent them from running away or being stolen. It is often worn to protect against physical harm during horseback riding or in any other laborious form of craftsmanship or service. We love using turquoise, as anything that carries with it such historical significance and ancient practice attracts us! It reminds us that, although death is inevitable, something within us is eternal and will always be passed on.
