Stone Lore:

Turquoise has been a sacred stone in many cultures. The Native Americans believed it helped connect the mind to the Universe, and used it in rainmaking ceremonies, and to protect the wearer from danger. Every shaman used a turquoise stone. The ancient pharaohs used it as ornamentation and to protect their status and wealth. It is said to help release negative behaviors, such as self-sabotage, to foster clear, heartfelt communication, and in general to attract healing and good luck.

Red Jasper is said to guard against danger, to promote survival and physical energy, as well as to give one the courage to speak out and to be independent. It is also called the �stone of justice�, as it is considered to support fairness, and enhance compassion and responsibility.
