Turquoise is receptive and is a sacred stone to many American Indian tribes. It promotes courage, money, love, friendship, healing and luck. A piece of turquoise is a required tool in the Apache shaman's medicine or power bag. This is a protective stone. Horse riders wear turquoise to protect themselves
from falls. (I wonder if Christopher Reeve knew this before his most tragic accident?) In Ancient times, turquoise was utilized to gain wealth. Wearing turquoise can speed the healing process. Like all blue stones, it is said to attract good fortune.
