Turquoise is a semi-precious stone much loved by ancient shamanic peoples throughout the world. Many consider it a lucky and protective traveller stone. The ancient peoples and still many today revere it for its healing power, often wearing it as a personal ornament for special protection.
In Tibetan medicine turquoise is also the colour of Yuthok – the father of Tibetan medicine, its unique properties considered essential to protect a person’s vital energy precious (bLa) from being depleted or to ward off psychic attacks.
Traditional Tibetan medicine practitioners believe that losing one’s bLa will lead to a loss of vitality and shortened lifespan. Little wonder that Tibetans revere the stone and measure their wealth by the number of pieces in their collection. However, to obtain the full benefit of turquoise, the stone must not subjected to heat treatment or processed. Unfortunately many pieces sold today are processed or clever dyed fakes difficult for even experienced buyers to discern.
Each piece of our turquoise jewellery is 100% natural turquoise, some pieces are one of a kind from a personal collection.
