About the materials used in our Pick N Mix Gemstone and Pearl Endless Necklace
Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. The substance has been known by many names, but the word turquoise dates to the 17th century and is derived from the French turques for “Turks” because the mineral was first brought to Europe from Turkey, from mines in the historical Khorasan Province of Persia. Turquoise was among the first gems to be mined, and many historic sites have been depleted, though some are still worked to this day. These are all small-scale operations, often seasonal owing to the limited scope and remoteness of the deposits. Most are worked by hand with little or no mechanization. However, turquoise is often recovered as a by-product of large-scale copper mining operations, especially in the United States.
It is known as the ‘love stone’ as the message it emits is a strong vibration of unconditional love, joy, warmth and emotional healing. This beautiful pink crystal has a powerful energy that resonates within both the heart chakra and the higher heart chakra or thymus chakra, the area related to compassion. This stone will resonate out its love energy into its surroundings to help all those who are nearby, such as your nearest and dearest. Rose Quartz colors range from very pale pink through to deep pink, and all have that wonderful loving vibration. Deposits have been found in Madagascar, India, Japan and Brazil, as well as in South Africa and South Dakota in the USA. It may be translucent or transparent, although most pieces are fairly opaque. All colors and types have excellent healing qualities.
Howlite was named after Henry How, who discovered it in 1868 in Nova Scotia. Howlite is a borate mineral, which occurs in Canada and parts of the USA. Howlite has the appearance of white marble or porcelain with a sub-vitreous lustre but is often dyed to emulate Turquoise.
