Turquoise is a copper aluminium phosphate that varies in colour from blue to blue/green due to the varying content of copper and iron. It can sometimes be found growing with another copper based mineral Chrysocolla and mistaken for this stone. Due to the nature of some forms of this mineral it can sometimes be treated with resins which help to stabilize it, although this treatment can decrease its value.
However a pure form, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona is highly sought and has become increasing rare.
The frequency of Turquoise is connected to the throat chakra and can stimulate that chakra to allow one to speak truefully one’s inner wisdom so it may be for the benefit of all.
This stone allows one to recognize all parts of one’s being to integrate all the darker negative aspects of oneself. It supports one energetically so that one is able to understand the “gift” in all experiences however negative, so that one may move forward. Thus bringing a wholeness to one’s being, allowing for self-forgiveness and self-acceptance.
