About the stone
Turquoise is the birthstone for December.
Turquoise is one the worlds most ancient gems, used as talismans by kings, shamans and warriors across history. Turquoise has been seen by many civilizations as a sacred stone and used to bring power, luck and protection.
Turquoise is believed to be a most efficient healer. A protective and purifying stone, it dispels negative energy and protects against pollutants in the environment. It assists with problem-solving, calms the nerves, strengthens the mind and brings inner calm.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is revered and highly sought after due to its pure sky blue colour which shows very little to no veining or webbing. It is still being collected from the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, Arizona where a small operation of workers mines, processes and ships the stones.
Blue Topaz is the Birthstone for November.
Blue Topaz has been used in jewellery for over 2000 years. It was once believed that Topaz would protect the wearer from dark magic. In the 12th century Saint Hildegard, a German nun, believed that Blue Topaz could cure blindness by soaking the stone in wine for 3 days and then rubbing it gently on the eyes.
Blue Topaz is a calming stone. It is thought to help with communication, creativity and the ability to express yourself. Great for writers block and to aid with public speaking. It is also thought to help with decision making, promotes concentration and helps recognize truth and wisdom.
