Turquoise Metaphysical Properties
Metaphysically, Turquoise is considered to be a bridge between Heaven/Sky and Earth, grounding us while still remaining open to Spirit. Many Native American cultures believe Turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe, and Turquoise is considered sacred in many Chinese cultures as well. Turquoise is a wonderful companion to use when removing and releasing old behaviors such as self-sabotage and self-martyrdom that no longer serves in growth.
Turquoise is great for working with the Throat Chakra, to foster honest and clear communication from the heart, and with Water and Air Elements. Enhancing intuition, Turquoise also enhances communication between the physical and spiritual realms. Use Turquoise to release old vows, express freely, and ease nerves when speaking in public. Turquoise is a protective stone, often being used for amulets. Turquoise is also a healing stone, providing strength and purification.
Lapis Lazuli Metaphysical Properties
Made from a combination of minerals, including Lazurite, Calcite, and Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli is said to have been in existence since the birth of time, and was used by ancient Hebrews on ceremonial robes.
Lapis Lazuli reminds us of the power of the spoken word and is one of the best stones to use when opening and balancing the Throat Chakra. Lapis Lazuli helps to foster full verbal expression, and clears problems caused by “swallowing your tongue”. Lapis encourages clear, truthful expression when sharing information with others, including an easier voicing/communication of anger.
A Third Eye Chakra opener, Lapis Lazuli connects the physical and celestial kingdoms. Deeply peaceful, Lapis provides wisdom into mystical realms and connection with spiritual guardians. Lapis Lazuli can be a key to spiritual attainment. Lapis also protects against psychic attacks, shielding negative energy and returning any negative vibrations to their source. Lapis Lazuli will enhance dream work and spiritual journeying.
Physically, Lapis Lazuli helps with the immune system, thyroid, and nervous system. It can alleviate headaches, migraines, fevers, and pain.
Golden Sheen Black Obsidian
Black Obsidian is an opaque volcanic glass, whereas the translucent variety is called Apache Tears. Black Obsidian is sometimes known as the “wizard stone”, because it has been used in magical practices since ancient times. It is a protective stone, often worn to guard against negativity, demanding people, hostile entities and geopathic stress. It eases tension, especially in the home and can protect against electromagnetic fields.
Use Black Obsidian during meditation to find a creative way through problems. It is helpful in developing intuition and grounding you to the earth, releasing negative energies that result in restlessness, irritability, and nervousness. Place a piece of Black Obsidian near a nervous pets’ bed to help it feel less frightened and skittish.
Obsidian protects the wearer from hostility, negativity, psychic ‘vampires’ and spiritual entities that do not belong. It offers release from tension and enables one to move forward in his/her life, with a more promising outlook.
White Jade Metaphysical Properties
White Jade (also known as “mutton fat jade” when it is a translucent white to light yellow; and "chicken bone" jade when an opaque white to cream/light brown) is a calming, grounding Nephrite jade that also protects the wearer from negative energies. It brings peace, harmony and luck. White Jade is also wonderful in the decision-making process, as it blocks distractions, allowing for the best results to reveal themselves (which makes it especially useful for children).
Physically, White Jade assists the body to heal itself, helps with bladder and kidney problems, and eases the pain of arthritis and other joint illnesses, especially in the hips. White Jade also helps with fluid retention, high blood pressure and imbalances in blood sugar levels.
