Turquoise - It's colour is vibrant, fun, and takes us to far off places where we swim in dazzling oceans, walk on white sands and drink cocktails while being kissed by the sun.
Turquoise was used in ancient times by the egyptians when it was made into jewellery for the Pharaohs, and in more recent times, buildings like the Taj Mahal. It's also thought to symbolise the great flood that covered the earth's surface.
It's famous for its colour, and natural spider webbing pattern due to the inclusion of Iron Oxides.
Our Tegan bracelet is handcrafted from stabilised Turquoise; this is due to the rarity and high cost of 'gemstone quality' stone.
When natural Turquoise is mined it's often too soft to cut, so epoxies are added to the stone under low pressure which hardens it for cutting. It is important to note that stabilised Turquoise is still genuine turquoise and makes up most of the jewellery and beads sold on the market today.
Our bracelet also includes natural hematite or stainless steel spacers, along with a 10mm lava stone for your essential oils.
Tegan - Turquoise and Lava Aromatherapy Bracelet
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
