Turquoise 108 bead knotted
Perhaps the oldest stone used in human civilization, with specimens found from 5000 BCE, turquoise is prized as a stone of wisdom, nobility and immortality. It is said to subtely change color depending on the wearer’s condition. One traditional use is for protection from falls. Its association with communication makes this an excellent stone for the Throat Chakra.
