For the last 5 years or so I have been on a spiritual quest. I have purchased many, many stones. Worn many many bracelets, necklaces, you name it. And I stumbled upon Turquoise. It has Drained me beyond belief :( All of the sudden my all but forgotten nerve compression came back Full Force. I'm talking a 9 of Swords, 10 of Swords experience.
Is it me??? What are your experiences with this stone???

I wonder if the particular specimen is reconstituted/stabilized or a dyed gemstone material. There are many things being sold as substitutes.

Cardlady, i really do not know about the origins of the bracelet, except I got it from a reputable crystals webstore and it did not cost much. Around $8.

I have been giving this some thought and I have done some research on this,too. But I just canīt find anything like this about Turquoise. It seems to be a very positive stone, all about spiritual clarity, love and especially mothering.
So..are you quite sure it is the stone that is draining your energy?

Have you tried to cleanse and re-program the stone? (There is a nice thread about programming in the sticky "index" thread above.)

I do think that anything can be over done/over used. This would include gemstones too. Apparently something in that bracelet gives you too much of a good thing. Turquoise is a great crystal, and known as a sacred stone to the American Indians. I do wonder if Hemera is on to something and perhaps you need to cleanse this stone? Over all it is known as a great positive stone, and is spiritually, emotionally and physically and mentally positive.

I think again, as Hemera mentions, you should probably make sure it is the stone itself that is draining your energy. When you have made sure it is the bracelet, perhaps try wearing it only once in awhile. You may also want to cleanse it--and you can google to see how to safely do this to your bracelet. so many stones cannot get wet, or shouldn't be in the direct sunlight for hours on end, etc. so be sure to research the safest way to program and cleanse your turquoise bracelet.

I have a moldavite gem that I wear on a chain as a necklace. It is too strong for me, and so I now only wear it when I'm going to divine for someone. It is way too powerful for me, bringing on massive migraines and such. So now, we've found a happy medium. I wear it only when divining and then when I am done, I take it off and put it away.

*did a bit of googling on turquoise and found it is recommended to clean your turquoise once a month in a bowl with tumbled hematite stones and then recharge it by setting it with rock crystals. It is also advised to keep it out of the light of the sun.

I've got a Turquoise tumble stone which gives me very deep meditations. I find the stone alright. A lot of people sell Blue Howlite but wrongly label it as Turquoise.

Fair enough, I will try and reprogramm this stone. It looks Soooo Pretty and was told it would protect me then of all the sudden my back pains which were Long Gone re-appeared full force :( you can imagine my 10 of swords moment. Perhaps placing under the moon light?? I will cleanse and reprogramme. :)

Ys, I think maybe I have placed my own lack of energy onto the poor stone and now it reflects Maximum..??? LOL, just thought about this, i have been feeling Such a Strain from all aspects in life lately. Drained. Do you think this stone Magnifies what already exists?? or perhaps unearths this?? I will place the bracelet under seasalt and under the moonlight. Whatever it takes to get rid of the 10 of the swords...:)

Hmmmmm.....this is an interesting revelation! the webstore stated very clearly the stone was Turquoise, however only a gemologist would know and i am so far from that, LOL. i know i paid a tiny sum for it, $8. and it sucked the life outta me :(

Turquoise generally has a dark veiny look within its the blue. With Blue Howlite, as the Howlite is dyed blue, you can rub the blue of in some cases. I've seen a lot of retailers selling Blue Howlite as Turquoise, it happens all the time.

Real and untreated turquoise is the most powerful energy booster that I know!!!
I think that probably your turquoise is dyed howlite, because it contains much boron, and boron is a strong astringent; too much boron can "dry" your vitality.
All the stones with boron, for example, are useful to take care of a very oily skin,
but they are not ok for normal skins, because of this drying action.

I have some of Pierre Derlon's books about gypsies and he mentions that according to the gypsies, turquoise is the most powerful healing stone for physical ailments. From what I recall, it has to be untreated and worn constantly. Turquoise contains copper (hence the blue color) which is a powerful electric conductor, so some of the effect may be based on that. I wonder if other metal jewelry could also interfere with the effect.
I've briefly experimented with turquoise but didn't get any results. With quartz crystals, I've noticed they can amplify negative feelings. I suspect that both stones can affect the body's electromagnetic field.

You say it's very pretty and very pretty turquoise wouldn't sell for $8, I can tell you that. I'd suspect whether it's really turquoise or a dyed stone instead.

I agree with Libra8ca; natural turquoise contains copper, iron and phosphorus; and I use to wear it alone, because it is a very strong stone.
Day after day, it can boost the body energy at the best level.
