Turquoise is a very effective healing stone, protective stone, and enhances communication with the physical and spiritual worlds. In traditional Native American thought, turquoise unites the earth and sky, bringing together male and female energies. Physically, turquoise is an excellent stone for exhaustion, depression and panic attacks. As a healing stone, turquoise strengthens the meridians of the body and subtle energy fields. Additionally it is an anti-inflammatory, a detoxifier and it alleviates cramps and pain.
This beautiful piece of turquoise heaven came from the Dyer Blue Mine in Nevada. The colorful matrix, in addition to the vibrant blue is a turquoise dream. Initially I had set this turquoise aside to use it in a copper ring design for myself, but as I looked into the unique matrix patterns of this gemstone, I had to incorporate it into one of my rustic copper cuffs. I am so happy that I did, as this handcrafted copper cuff is absolutely a piece of art.
