So I was working with some stones we collected in AZ and UT in our recent travels. And a jeweler friend mentioned how various stones were known for their healing properties and such.

Whether I choose to believe every detail in entirety or not, the color coded brain wants to gather these details and man! do I love stones? I picked and chose these from the array of info available in books and online. (more to come)

So here you go:

Turquoise

In the world of crystal healing, Turquoise is supposed to be a stone of communication. New Age healers recommend it for people who have a fear of public speaking. They believe it has the ability to make a speaker more eloquent, loving, creative and honest. But it is also improves the mental state overall by increasing all of the following positive mental characteristics: serenity, creativity, empathy, positive thinking, sensitivity, intuition, happiness

wisdom all of which result in a calmer state that leads to greater self-realization.

It is also considered a stone of friendship. As a communication stone, the New Age believers say that it opens up the connections between friends and allowing love to flow in those communications, which strengthens the friendship bond. Further, they believe it has the power to strengthen convictions, courage and personal power.

Aventurine

Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers.

Legends say that it is an all-purpose healer, used to reduce stress, develop confidence, imagination and improve prosperity. A legend from ancient Tibet says that aventurine was used to improve nearsightedness and to increase the wearer’s creativity.

Many believe that aventurine has the capacity to calm a troubled spirit and bring about inner peace.

Pink Opal

The opal is said to be many things including the most powerful of healing stones, the stone of hope, the stone of great achievement and even the “stone of the Gods”. Ancient Romans associated opal with hope and good luck.

It is said to be the stone of love, but only to faithful lovers.
