Probably one of the first stones worn by human beings, Turquoise has been prized as a stone of Power, Luck, Protection, Nobility and Friendship for ages. Turquoise is the birthstone of those born in December.
It has a blue-green hue, although some varieties are more greenish; and has got brown or white veins running randomly though the stone. Instead of diminishing the value of the gem, these veins add on the natural beauty of Turquoise.
It is said to protect riders and travellers from falls and used to be a sign of power when worn by ancient noblemen. Today, we fashion all sorts of jewellery like bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings. Turquoise jewellery suits most skin-tones, ages and looks great on both men and women.
Turquoise also enhances the leadership skill of a person. And of course, that applies to both men and women.
An Arabic Proverb says: “A turquoise given by a loving hand carries with it happiness and good fortune.” So there you go, the powers of Turquoise are enhanced by a true friendship.
By wearing or gifting a beloved friend a piece of Turquoise jewellery, you will be joining the Ancient Egyptians; Persians; Chinese; Aztecs; Incas of South America; and Native North Americans in wearing a piece of good luck, protection, leadership and friendship everyday.
