Turquoise is a stone of the ancients representing, love, tranquility and good fortune. This was a sacred stone among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and the Aztecs. In Vedic Astrology, it represents the planet Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love and beauty.
Turquoise opens the Throat Chakra (Fifth Chakra) which is why it's so good for communication. It also opens the Heart Chakra (Fourth Chakra) and invites love, compassion and beauty into the user's life.
People with a prominent Venus in their Astrological chart normally work in the fields of art, beauty and entertainment. They would greatly benefit from wearing this stone.
