Legend of Turquoise
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 the Earth, has been valued by cultures for its beauty for over 7000 years. It is a true gem of the centuries. A long time ago someone noticed a clear blue line running through a 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 the stone of blessings, good fortune, protection, good health and long life.
To the Native Americans, turquoise is life. Turquoise, is known for its positive healing energy, and as a protector. If you're wearing a turquoise ring and you look down and see a crack in your stone, the Native Americans would say "the stone took it", meaning the stone took the blow that you would have received.
