Turquoise is a semi-precious stone known for its spiritual and energetic healing qualities and reputed to aid in stress-relief and the elimination of negative energies.
And there's no question about it, that it is also one of the most beautiful semi-precious stones in the world.
Revered as a protective stone shield used by warriors and soldiers going into battle for centuries, our collection of seven rare and exquisite turquoise beads are said to come from the Tibetan mountainous region of the Himalayas.
Turquoise is found in many countries throughout the world, but some of the finest turquoise comes from dry and arid regions in the United States, Mexico, Turkey, Iran, the Himalayas, Chile and China.
The stone is easily distinguished by its unique green and blue hues and is believed to attract good fortune and its ability to guide one to a state of calm and tranquillity.
