Turquoise is above all a powerful healing stone. It is a strong stone that connects earth with sky, providing balance between Ying and Yang, or masculine and feminine, energies in the mind and body. It heightens intuition, releases negative energy and stabilizes mood. It is very protective and good at deterring negative energies and has been used for this in amulets and jewellery all throughout history. Turquoise is also an excellent stone to help avoid exhaustion, depression and panic attacks making it a wonderful gift for loved ones prone to mental illness.
