Description of Maiara
Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. My pieces have a tribal and old world feel to them.
Turquoise is said to emulate Strength, wisdom and protection from harm. If given turquoise by a loving friend, turquoise is thought to protect the wearer from negative energy, bring good fortune, and be a symbol of friendship.
It is one of the oldest stones known. Turquoise is a stone that has been prized for many years. The name means
“Turkish stone” as it came to Europe by way of Turkey. Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in Sinai. The turquiose I use comes from New Mexico.
