Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry is very popular amongst the Indian tribes throughout the world. The importance of Turquoise is relevant with all tribes because of the reverence of the gem. Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry has been discovered in many Indian burial mounds all over the world.
There are many religious beliefs, folklore, legends and also myths in which the Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry plays a part. Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry has been found in medallions, beaded on strings, and also as art pieces such as mosaics in the burial site of the ancient Indians.
The ancient Navajo Indians began making jewelry out of Turquoise and adding it to silver in the 1800′s. Then it was passed on throughout history.
Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become SkyStone Turquoise.
Turquoise, the “fallen sky stone” hidden in Mother Earth, has been valued by cultures for its beauty and reputed spiritual and life-giving qualities for over 7000 years. It is a true gem of the centuries. A long time ago someone noticed a clear blue line running through gray rock, and saw the imagery of sky and water in stone, and from that time on, turquoise has been cherished above all else in creation – turquoise, stone of sky, stone of water, stone of blessings, good fortune, protection, good health and long life.
I have just launched 6 of my most coveted Native American Turquoise Medallions into my One Of A Kind Necklaces Collection…. It’s not easy parting with these beauties, but it was a blessing to work with them and bring them new life.
Enjoy and be well!
