The Significance of Turquoise in American Indian Culture
As you browse our selection of sterling silver women's watches, you may be wondering why turquoise is featured so prominently in Native American jewelry. In addition to being used as a currency in the ancient times, the Native Americans valued it for its magical powers. Ancient American Indian burial grounds were often surrounded by turquoise because it is said to ward off evil. Turquoise is associated with success, luck, power, and protection.
Turquoise was often used by priests who adorned themselves in it during ceremonies. If you were to walk into a typical Southwestern Native American household in the 1800s, you would probably see bags of turquoise hanging to keep bad fortune away. It was common for hunters to place turquoise stones in the path of potential game, as they believed that it would slow them down. On the same page, horsemen often refused to carry turquoise with them on long journeys because they believed the stone's power would hinder the horse.
