Turquoise Meaning and Healing Properties

Turquoise is a hydrous phosphate mineral composed of copper and aluminum phosphate with traces of iron, calcium, and other elements. Turquoise has been adored for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Egypt and China. It is the national stone of Tibet, one of the traditional December birthstones and the 11th anniversary stone. The name "Turquoise" is derived from the French word "Turquois" meaning "Turkish," as Turquoise was originally brought to Europe from Turkey. Historically, Turquoise has been mined in regions like Persia (modern-day Iran), Egypt, China, and the southwestern United States (Arizona, New Mexico). Today, major turquoise deposits are found in the United States (especially Arizona and Nevada), Mexico (Sonora and Chihuahua), Iran, China, and other locations worldwide.

Turquoise is formed through a complex geological process involving the interaction of copper-rich solutions with minerals like aluminum and phosphorus in porous rocks such as limonite or sandstone. The presence of these minerals and elements, along with varying degrees of oxidation, gives turquoise its characteristic color range from sky blue to greenish tones.The most desirable color of Turquoise is a sky blue or robin's-egg blue.

Native Americans used Turquoise in ceremony and as a currency. The Apache believed Turquoise could be found at the end of rainbows. They also believed that attaching Turquoise to a bow or firearm enhanced your aim. The Pueblo believed that Turquoise got its color from the sky and the Hopi believed Turquoise was formed by lizards scurrying over the earth. Turquoise has been believed to bring powerful protection, good luck and health by many cultures throughout history. Hindu mystics believed that seeing Turquoise after the new moon ensured massive wealth. Turquoise has been used as a talisman for royalty, shamans and warriors throughout history.

Turquoise is an enchanting gem of expression, protection and good luck. Its clearing energy will transmute negative energy into positive and clear away any stagnant energy from the body's energy field. Turquoise creates a peaceful and harmonious environment for communication. Its soothing energy allows you to fully express yourself while remaining calm and composed. Turquoise creates a powerful shield of protection around the aura and attracts wealth. Its auspicious and lucky energy will magentize your desires, prosperity, new opportunities, and connections. Turquoise inspires you to live authentically and embrace your soul's unique gifts.
