NEW DESIGN! RAW TURQUOISE "LARIAT" Necklace, Sterling Silver
This design combines the natural beauty of a Raw Turquoise stone with a smaller version of my "lariat" necklaces, creating a lovely, adjustable necklace that you may be tempted to play with the whole time you're wearing it!
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest decorative stone in mankind's history, the TalisWOman of Kings and Queens, Shamans, and Warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars.
For thousands of years, Turquoise has spanned all cultures, prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection. Turquoise strengthens the meridians of the body and the subtle energy fields, enhancing communication between the physical and spiritual worlds. Placed on the Third Eye, it supports intuition and meditation. On the throat chakra, it releases old vows, inhibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more.
These Raw Turquoise stones are each approximately 1/2" tall x 3/8" wide- each stone varies slightly of course, so the one you receive may differ slightly from the ones pictured here, but they will certainly be very close in size, shape and coloring!
