Turquoise comes from the French turquoise, meaning “Turkey,” which in ancient times encompassed Persia (Iran). This stone bridges earth and heaven and is sacred to Native Americans. To be given a Turquoise brings good fortune and against injury, outside influences, or atmospheric pollutants. Promoting spiritual worlds, Turquoise is an efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well being for the body. A powerful energy conduit, it releases old vows, inhibitions, and prohibitions, dissolved a martyred attitude or self-sabotage, and allows the soul to express itself once more. Turquoise shows how the creation of our “fate” depends on what we do at each moment.
