For nearly a thousand years, Native Americans have mined and fashioned Turquoise, using it to guard their burial sites. Their gems have been found from Argentina to New Mexico. Indian priests wore it in ceremonies when calling upon the great spirit of the sky. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the universe when wearing it. Because of its ability to change colors, it was used in prophesy or divining. To the prehistoric Indian, Turquoise, worn on the body or used in ceremonies always signified the god of the sky alive in the earth.
Turquoise stimulates the Throat Chakra, improving our ability to speak our own voice and communicate to others. It connects us deeply to the Earth, to our human ancestors, to Spirit.
This Turquoise is from the beloved Kingman mine.
Ring is a US size 8.
The Precious Earth collection features high quality, hand-selected gemstones that have been electroformed in copper first, before a heavy plating of precious metal is applied. Featured here is Rose Gold. The copper underplating works as an amplification tool for the inherent vibrations of the crystals themselves, as copper is a natural conductor.
