💎 NUMBER 8 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.
The Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. It's famous for its black, golden red and brown spider web matrix set off with the unique bright powder blue turquoise background. The mine has now been depleted, and for this reason Number 8 Turquoise is considered to be extremely valuable.
