      With vibrant colors as vibrant as the clear blue sky on a sunny day, Turquoise is a sacred stone sure to stimulate each of your senses. Turquoise has been used for centuries as an aid in communication, for those seeking the truth-seeking, and manifestation of destiny. The stone has an unquestionable ability to assist people in voicing their own opinion, and for speaking up for themselves when placed in a larger crowd (to escape group think).

Turquoise activates the throat chakra making it easier to voice deep thoughts and opinions you might typically reserve for internal monologue. Turquoise is also a stone of wholeness.

Tribes fashioned the stone into wearable forms—necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings—so they could carry its powerful qualities with them. The Indian warriors would carry this lucky talisman to give them strength and courage during their coming of age journeys through the wilderness, where they were expected to travel alone for a time and forge their own paths.
