TURQUOISE: Meaning & Properties
The word turquoise dates to the 17th century and is derived from the French turquois for "Turkish" because the mineral was first brought to Europe through Turkey, from mines in the historical Khorasan Province of Persia.
As a stone of purification, Turquoise dispels negative energy and clears electromagnetic smog from the environment. It promotes self-realization and aids in creative problem-solving, thus calming the nerves when speaking in public. It helps to stabilize mood swings and dissolves any martyred attitude or self-sabotage. Turquoise gemstones are said to support the pursuit of new romantic love and spontaneous romance.
