Own a Piece of Ancient History
Turquoise and jewelry in general, has a long and fascinating history in Native American culture. In the early 1800s, Southwestern tribes exchanged beaded jewelry with the Spanish traders in exchange for teaching them silversmithing. With this new knowledge, many tribes created breathtaking jewelry of such high quality that it is often exhibited in museums today. Turquoise in particular was a favorite material due to its believed strong magical powers and resistance to evil.
The Power of Turquoise
In American Indian cultures, a turquoise heart pendant was much more than a fashion accessory or a decoration. The Native Americans adorned themselves and their homes with turquoise pendants to ward off misfortune and promote good health. When traveling on long journeys, they would not bring turquoise with them out of fear that its powerful magic would tire the horses. The Zuni tribe was known to perform ceremonies wearing turquoise jewelry, masks, and body paint, in honor of Awonawilona, the creator of the world and the bringer of life, who eventually became the sun, according to some accounts.
