Native American Medicine Company’s Treasure Cans are made with high quality, 26 gauge Sterling silver and polished gemstone inlay.
The side of this oval can is inlaid with man-made, stabilized turquoise. Turquoise ranges in color from powder blue, to a blue green, to a yellowish green. It is formed as a secondary element as the result of weathering and oxidation by water as it dissolves minerals and flows through porous rocks over eons of time. The turquoise accumulates in these cracks and crevices. Turquoise ranges in hardness from 3.0 to 6.0 on the Mohs scale.
Turquoise was one of the first gemstones ever mined, dating back to 6000 BCE. Turquoise was very important in several Native American cultures, where it represented the union between Earth and sky.
Metaphysically, turquoise is used to correct imbalances, dispel depression, combat exhaustion, and bring peace of mind. It is also used to fortify the respiratory system and fight allergy symptoms. It is thought to foster communication from the heart and help with public speaking. Turquoise is a master healer stone, promoting the flow of the vibration of love.
The Sterling silver can serves to enhance the energies of the stones around it, while also strengthening the connection between the astral and physical planes.
Stash your tiny treasures in the Native American Medicine Treasure Can to infuse them with these powerful energies.
