This stone is most famous as an amazing healer for illnesses in the physical body and mental/emotional issues. Turquoise is known as a stone of protection and communication on every level. It is a stone most attune to the thymus gland. The thymus is located in the upper part of the chest between the heart and the throat and produces T-lymphocytes (white blood cells that fight infections and destroy abnormal cells). It is an important organ of the immune system. This is exactly why turquoise has an effect on the entire body. Use turquoise at the Throat chakra to encouraging communication between heart and mind as well as expressing your desires and dreams. It opens the Throat chakra for clear communication, serenity, spiritual bonding and uplifting through verbal expression. Turquoise can be placed at the Heart chakra to energize the thymus, heart and immune system. Turquoise is used at the Third Eye chakra for increasing our psychic connection to great spirit through intuition and allows for much deeper meditation.
