About African Turquoise:
African Turquoise is a variety of Jasper. Jasper is derived from the Greek for “spotted stone”, and is a form of microcrystalline quartz. The finely grained, dense jasper contains up to twenty percent foreign materials that determine its color, streak, and appearance. Jasper was cherished for its beauty and mystical properties since ancient times, and is mentioned in the Bible, used on the Great Wall of Jerusalem, and was treasured throughout ancient Greece. Jasper is found in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Russia, Uruguay and the United States.
Jasper: Powerfully grounds mental energies, helps with handling life’s day-to-day details, and promotes healing. Jasper is folklored to bring good health as well as courage and wisdom and be a protective talisman.
Tiger’s Eye: The chosen material for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own mala. It is folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
