Turquoise, the robin’s egg blue gemstone worn by Pharaohs and Aztec Kings, is one of the oldest gemstones known. Turquoise has been extensively used by Tibetans, southwestern U.S. Native Americans, and by many of the Indian tribes in Mexico since about 200 B.C. For thousands of years, the finest intense blue turquoise in the world was found in Persia (now Iran). Today, Turquoise is mined chiefly in Iran, Afghanistan, China, Australia, Chile, Mexico, and the United States (Arizona and Nevada). This is magnesite, a close cousin to turquoise, similar in color.
Turquoise Magnesite: Activates the inner eye and provides insight into truths one may be unaware of. It assists in removing blinders to truth, providing great insights to one’s state of being, and enhances the connection between the heart and the higher mind.
Howlite: Balances calcium levels and strengthens the bones and teeth. It is also thought to be a calming stone that can relieve insomnia, therefore, some insomniacs place a piece of Howlite beneath their pillow to encourage restful sleep.
