Morenci Turquoise, Moonstone & Howlite
💜 For a closer look at this incredible piece, check out the video I posted on my Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwBOuTsB3vl/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
I created this handcrafted statement pendant using four gorgeous stones; A stunning bright blue Morenci Turquoise, a beautiful white Howlite, and two flashy high-grade Sri Lankan Moonstones. I chose these gems because I wanted to create a talisman that embodied calming and healing properties, while also having a connection to the serenity and beauty of the ocean. I named this pendant 'The Wave Tamer' as it promotes balance, protection, emotional healing and luck.
The pendant itself has been made from a thick solid sterling silver hand-sawed back plate, a large 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, fine silver bezel settings around each stone, and sterling silver twisted trims. The stones also surround two gorgeous little starfishes made from solid sterling silver. It has then been oxidised, sanded, polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord, which means that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, or anything in between! Like all my work, Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!

💎 MORENCI TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
Morenci Turquoise is often considered to be one of world's most beautiful types of Turquoise, and it originates from the Morenci Turquoise mine in south-eastern Arizona. Although closed in the late 1970's, the Morenci Turquoise Mine produced some of the finest Turquoise that has ever come out of the ground! It is high to light blue in colour, with a wonderful "Birdseye" or "Water Web" matrix pattern, often filled with beautiful Iron Pyrite that looks like Silver, and black iron spiderweb matrix. The name is derived from the large open pit Morenci copper mine, where a great deal of turquoise from. Morenci Turquoise is highly collectible, due to it becoming so difficult to obtain.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
💎 HOWLITE LORE:
Howlite is natural a white or colourless stone, usually with a grey matrix. It is often dyed a variety of colours (often red or blue) to enhance its look and magical properties. The stone was discovered in 1868 by J.D. Dana and named for Canadian chemist H. How who discovered it.
Howlite has the ability to calm and absorb anger. It helps with Anxiety, Stress and Insomnia, and can be used to aid meditation. Leave Howlite by your bedside table each night to help you relax and sleep and also help you remember your dreams more effectively.
As well as this, Howlite can also be used to release attachments that cause pain (whether it be from friends, family or past relationships). Once these attachments are severed, Howlite can help its wearer heal and bring closer and peace to their lives.
