Turquoise is perhaps best known for its use in the artwork and jewelry of the Native American people of the Southwest, but it is found all over the world, including in Tibet and Egypt. It appears in various shades of blue, from light to dark, and often appears speckled or banded with black or white streaks. Use turquoise in rituals to bring about wisdom and intuition, and to seek connection between the natural and Divine.
