Metaphysically, Turquoise is considered to be a bridge between Heaven, the Sky, and Earth, grounding us while remaining open to Spirit. Many Native American cultures believe Turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe, and Turquoise is considered sacred in many Chinese cultures as well. Turquoise is a wonderful companion to use when removing and releasing old behaviors such as self-sabotage and self-martyrdom that no longer serves in growth.
Turquoise is great for working with the Throat Chakra, to foster honest and clear communication from the heart. Enhancing intuition, Turquoise also enhances communication between the physical and spiritual realms. Use this stone to release old vows, express freely, and ease nerves when speaking in public. Turquoise is a protective stone, often being used for amulets. Turquoise is also a healing stone, providing strength and purification.
