Stone: Shaped and polished piece of natural Turquoise mineral

Dimensions of pendant: 37mm(1.42")x 16mm(0.62")x 6mm(0.23")



Great piece of natural Turquoise from China. 15.2cts in weight. Nice sky blue colour, though a bit mottled and darker in reality than the flash photo depicts, and with a bit of matrix in the mix. Now I don't know about you, but I like a bit of matrix in my Turquoise so I know it's natural material. This stone started out as a larger rounded pendant bead that looked a bit dirty in colour, and with a heap of matrix toward the bottom. I reckoned it could be cleaned up a fair bit, and turned into a faceted stone. Much to my surprise, as I worked on the stone I discovered that this was naturally stable material. Not stabilised! So hard to come by. There's a lot of fake stuff out there. You've gotta watch out for Howlite that's been dyed blue too, though most do call it by its trade name Turquenite, some do try to pass it off as Turquoise. Stabilised material is regretably all too common too. This is a process where the unstable Turquoise material is bonded with apoxies in a pressurised autoclave situation to render it stable enough to work with and hold a finish. Most deposits found of Turquoise material only have a small amount of naturally stable Turquoise. About 5% I'm told, and with no guarantee that it's of the proper sky-blue colour with minimal matrix that the jewellery trade so prizes as "gem grade". So stabilised material is predominantly what's available to work with, and true examples of gem grade natural Turquoise can be very pricey to obtain. The stone was shaped by hand from a rounded pendant bead with wet/dry sandpaper of varying grade, a steady hand for the faceted jobbos, and elbow grease, until the desired shape and finish was acheived. I used Shamanistic soul-retrieval techniques while doing this, to reconnect the stone to its essence, and to heal it of any trauma from its journey to me, from being in the ground. I do this with all the stones I shape and wrap, as I find it creates a more effective energy tool. It takes a bit of time to shape them up this way, up to a good 24hrs of sitting there with a stone and a bit of sandpaper for some of the harder mineral types, but worth it in the end!


Turquoise is known as a most efficient healer, giving solace to the spirit and well-being for the body. Believed to be a protective stone, it's been used for amulets for thousands of years. Native American peoples hold Turquoise to be a sacred stone, that is a bridge for "sky magic" to be brought to the earth plane. Also has a reputation as an excellent protection stone for travelling, especially when flying. Believed to change colour to warn of infidelity. When placed on the third eye, Turquoise is thought to enhance intuition and meditation. Also, when placed on the throat chakra, releases you from old vows, inhibitions, and prohibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more. Shows how the creation of your fate has its roots in the past, and depends on what you do each moment. Turquoise is also known as a purification stone. It's meant to dispel negative energy and clear electromagnetic smog, providing protection against pollutants in the environment. Balances and aligns all the chakras with the energy bodies, and attunes the physical with the spiritual. Believed to be empathetic and balancing. Promotes self-realisation, and assists with creative problem solving, also meant to calm the nerves while public speaking. On a psychological level, Turquoise is thought to dissolve a martyred attitude or self-sabotage. Mentally, to instill inner calm and aid with creative expression, and emotionally, to stabilise mood swings. Is also thought to stimulate romantic love. Turquoise is also thought to be an excellent stone for exhaustion, depression, or panic attacks.
