Healing Stones Week: Turquoise

According to my Great Grandmother’s Book of Talismans, “The Turquoise is more frequently used for Amulets than any other stone, as much for its mystic virtues as for its beauty.”

It is said to be useful for arthritis, asthma, chest infections, eye trouble, headaches, inner ear problems, migraines, rheumatism and sore throats. I have truckloads of turquoise of all colours and sizes. Whenever I have a bad cold or achy bones, I’ll put it all on until I feel better.
