Turquoise has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. One of the oldest known examples is a bracelet belonging to the Egyptian queen Zer who ruled around 5500 BCE. Many Native American tribes also valued this stone believing it to be a bridge between Earth and Sky, grounding while remaining open to Spirit.
Turquoise promotes empathy, yet stabilizes mood swings, making it good for use with panic attacks or depression. It stimulates the Third Eye for use in mediation and activates the Throat Chakra, aiding in communication. Turquoise is a stone of self-forgiveness, self-acceptance and release from beliefs that no longer serve.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is prized for its smooth robin's egg blue coloring with limited veining. It comes from the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona, named so because the mountain resembles the figure of a reclined woman with her arms crossed.
Spiny Oyster comes from the shell of the Spondylus, a mollusk also known as Thorny Oyster. The most predominant colors are reds and oranges, but they can also be found in pinks, browns, yellows, purples, and whites. In addition to being a food source, many ancient cultures inhabiting the Americas also used their shells for currency, ceremonial purposes, or jewelry.
