What is Turquoise?
Turquoise is one of humanity’s oldest stones. Archeologists have found it all over the world, from Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s death mask in Egypt to Ancient Chinese plaques to Aztec statutes of Montezuma, and the oldest known Turquoise stones are beads discovered in Iraq that date from around 5000 B.C.E. This crystal got its name from the French phrase pierre turquoise, which means “Turkish stone,” because during the Middle Ages, Turkish traders were Europe’s main source of Turquoise. This crystal’s distinct blue-green color, caused by the presence of copper and aluminum in its chemical composition, has traditionally been associated with the sky. From ancient times to today, crystal collectors have prized Turquoise as a protective talisman, lucky charm, and emotional healer.
Metaphysical Benefits of Turquoise
Turquoise encourages balance, and when this critical component is achieved, it unlocks a whole world of success. On an emotional level, Turquoise stabilizes intense feelings, such as panic, fear, and anger, helping you find your way back to a tranquil mindset. It also provides a boost of energy and extra strength to combat exhaustion and depression. Turquoise reaches out to others and cultivates empathy that deepens your bonds with friends, lovers, and business partners. This sociable stone draws out shy individuals and encourages honest communication. Turquoise also promotes clarity on a mental level, allowing you to process information in a way that cultivates wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. It is a stone of truth that not only reveals the actuality of a situation but also your most genuine self. Sometimes these realities may be hard to face, but you cannot move forward until you acknowledge them. This emotional and mental work sets you up for success, and Turquoise gives you both the drive and protection necessary to chase your dreams. This crystal has powerful manifestation properties if you are willing to put in consistent effort.
What is the Spiritual Significance of Turquoise?
Turquoise is a deeply personal and spiritual stone. Traditional wisdom holds that Turquoise reflects its wearer; if they are sick or distressed, the stone’s color will dim, and if they are happy and healthy, it will become even more brilliant. Turquoise’s beautiful blue-green hue symbolizes unity between of the Earth and the Sky, the physical and spiritual planes, and male and female energies. It also represents the shift between winter and spring, when the ice melts and the buds begin to bloom; in the pagan Wheel of the Year, Turquoise is the embodiment of the sabbat of Imbolc. This crystal also blossoms during New Moons, allowing fresh starts and clear intention-setting. Turquoise has long been considered a protective talisman in Turkish and Navajo cultures, and it can dispel negative energy as well as electromagnetic frequencies. Turquoise resonates strongly with the Throat Chakra, allowing you to speak your truth. Working with the Third Eye Chakra, this stone stimulates your intuition to improve your clairaudience and clairvoyance and grant you access to memories from your past lives. Because of its protective properties, Turquoise allows you to engage in psychic and spiritual journeys without losing your tether to the Earth. Turquoise holds a special place in many religions around the world. In Judeo-Christian tradition, this stone is referenced multiple times in the Books of Exodus and Ezekiel. Turquoise is often associated with fertility goddesses such as the Apache and Navajo deity Estsanatlehi, who is also known as the Changing Woman or the Turquoise Woman, and the Egyptian goddess Hathor, who also looks after musicians and miners as the “Mistress of Turquoise.” In Hellenistic paganism, Turquoise is sacred to Sophia, the Goddess of Wisdom. Turquoise is the traditional birthstone for December, and it is also associated with one of that month’s zodiac signs: optimistic, kind, and adventurous Sagittarius. Other astrological correspondences include brave, resourceful Scorpio and wise, compassionate Pisces. In numerology, Turquoise vibrates in harmony with the number 1’s positivity and individuality.

Many crystals need to be cleared regularly, allowing them to rest and recharge, and Turquoise is no exception. We recommend clearing your Turquoise with soundwaves, meditation with the intent to cleanse, or moonlight. Because Turquoise is porous, it should not be cleared with water, as it will dissolve and release its copper content, which can make the water toxic.
