Turquoise Healing Properties, Correspondences and Meanings

Let’s talk about one of the most popular gemstone minerals in history; turquoise.  We’ll discuss the many colors and varieties while also taking a look a this stone’s healing properties, correspondences, and meanings.

Also, read on to be sure you’re not being duped by turquoise fakes! 

This stone is quite popular in jewelry (whereas selenite – with a Mohs hardness of 2, is not as popular because it gets scratched up much more easily), particularly in Native American jewelry and southwestern designs. Some of my fav jewelry pieces are turquoise!

Metaphysical Properties and History

Treasured for thousands of years, used in ancient Africa, Asia, South, and North America for many different purposes, this mineral is perhaps most often used as some form of protection.

Historically, turquoise was found to be worn by nobility in Ancient Egypt. There are so many museum pieces displaying the use of turquoise along with lapis lazuli, carnelian, and a few others. Plus, turquoise adorns the burial mask of Tutankhamun (aka King Tut) — one of the most well known and recognized artifacts of ancient times!

How to Make Your Car a Sacred Space

Car Sacred Space

How do you Make Your Car a Sacred Space?

It’s high time I give my crystal car mojo kit, (that I originally created many years ago) a dose of fresh juju!

So, I figured while I freshened up this little crystal kit, I’d also chat with you about setting up sacred space in an unlikely place; your car.  After all, it’s a place that many of us spend a lot of time. Am I right?

Crystal Car Mojo Kit

The first thing I add to make my car a sacred space is my must-have car protection mojo kit. We sometimes forget what a dangerous piece of machinery our car can be. My husband and I have been using one of these kits in our respective cars for over ten years now and we’ll never go without.

I detail in the above video exactly how to create my car mojo kit.

Extra Oomph!

If you’d like to do more of a ritual type of thing with your mojo kit to make that much more powerful…

  • You can meditate with your Car Mojo Kit beforehand and infuse it […]

Spotting Crystal Fakes & Frauds: Part 1

Hey Crystal Peeps!  I get a lot of questions about this topic & have been working on a loooong article on this topic for a loooong time…it just keeps getting longer. A little bit ago I posted some of this in a newsletter about 6 months ago (you can subscribe up there on the right side of my banner!) I figured I need to get a bit more of this out there now  & perhaps 1 day it will mature into a grown-up full-fledged article! Yay!

So, is the crystal you purchased natural, enhanced or an all-out fake?

The only way to know for sure is with exhaustive lab tests, however, you can still use your mad-crystal-skills & a little geology to make a strong educated guess. I see lots of misinformed YouTube vids on some of these & just want to set the record straight so you can make wise & informed decisions when making your crystal purchases, My Sweets!

Glass vs. Quartz

Glass is an amorphous solid. Oooooo, BIG SEXY SCIENTIFIC WORD! Amorphous just means that due to quick cooling, the molecules didn’t have time to arrange themselves in a crystalline repeating geometric pattern.

Quartz, on other hand, cooled slowly & […]
