Turquoise has long been considered a holy stone by Native Americans, believing it provides protection against harm. Egyptians and Greeks also considered it a protective stone and was worn by horse riders on long journeys. It is used as a healing stone with many attributes. It is said to help with the treatment of lung and throat infections, alleviate stomachache, gout, rheumatism, speed recovery from illness and infection, alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Psychologically it has the power to lift depression, promote endurance, and give self-confidence. It can stabilize mood swings, counteract apathy and renew energy. Turquoise is particularly effective on the throat chakra, and is linked to the star sign Aquarius. A necklace is a good choice if wanting to use turquoise on the throat chakra because it hangs on either side of the throat.
The Kentucky Coffee tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) is a rare tree whose seeds are roasted and used as a coffee substitute (these seeds were sustainably harvested).
Brass (comprised of copper and zinc) brings out our natural good and inner truth. Repeated wearing of brass jewelry causes the jewelry to take on your own body chemistry, which reflects your personal energy signature.
Copper is naturally anti-bacterial and encourages a positive attitude and decision making. It is particularly effective on the heart and root chakras as preparation for meditation.
