Turquoise should be cleansed once a month, but without using water. Use smaller pieces of cleansed Hematite for that. If your Turquoise changes color, that might be a sign that it needs cleansing and discharging. It is very fond of copper, so you can charge it beside copper or Rock crystals. Exposure to sunlight should be avoided.

sophia says:

is Tibetan Turquoise good for protection?

sunnyray says:

Tibetan Turquoise has somewhat different energy than the more bluish, ordinary Turquoise. It has been related to protective uses, especially when it comes to fidelity and marital protection. In Tibet, it is often given as a gift, as a token of love and good fortune.

medy says:

Hi,my turquoise stone is cracked..i repolish but it still in there...how to disguise it

sunnyray says:

Turquoise is known for that. I don't think there's much you can do about it. If it is really valuable to you, like it has sentimental value, then I would give it to a gemologist. Otherwise, luckily, Turquoise is not expensive, so you can easily replace it.

Geanna Schmidt says:

Hi there, I have a crack in one stone of my turquoise Naja, on my newly acquired squash blossom necklace. It appears to have been repaired/ patched and the patch has take. On a look of the same matrix as other stones. However, one area has flakes/chipped off, I'd like to touch it up with a glue or epoxy. Could I clean it up with acetone, and use the epoxy300 to rematch exposed area? Thank you so much!

Tracy says:

Tracy says:

Hi would you still receive the benefits of my turquoise ring if I wear it on my right hand middle finger or would it be better on my little finger also on the same right hand. Does it really make a big difference on which hand?

No it doesn't. We are talking about subtleties.
