Turquoise occurs as a secondary mineral in copper deposits. It has been mined for at least 6,000 years and has formed an important part of trade wherever it is found.
Turquoise is considered a highly protective stone, particularly for those on the spiritual path. It dissipates negativity and initiates balance. It creates a safe space.
Turquoise promotes self-acceptance, self-forgiveness and feeling whole.
Turquoise is very chalky by nature and more than 97% of turquoise mined needs to be stabilized before it is suitable for jewellery.
