Turquoise was one of the first broadly circulated stones throughout the Americas. Medicine men, Shamans and other tribal leaders as well as healers bestowed each other with pieces of it as gifts or used it to trade. It is believed that if one is connected with turquoise then they must speak wholly and truthfully. It can also aid in communication and growth of the application of wisdom. Turquoise helps the wearer come to acceptance of self and offers a physical sense of euphoria.
