Cornish Turquoise Cabochon
Shaped and polished as a cabochon, this Cornish Turquoise was from Gunheath China Clay Pit, near St Austell. It was collected in the 1970s, just before the area was redeveloped and a housing estate built.
Turquoise occurs by the action of water on copper and aluminium, forming tiny crystals in large chunks. It has been valued throughout time as a protective stone by cultures the world over.
Key Healing Properties: Turquoise is a strong activator of the throat chakra, assisting personal expression. The lesson of Turquoise is to rise to the challenge of when it is your time to speak out, arbitrate or take the lead in bringing a matter to fruition.
