Turquoise: Correspondence, Healing & Magickal Uses

Updated on:


Written by: Morningbird & MS Team

Turquoise is a hydrous phosphate of aluminum with copper and traces of iron. It is an opaque stone that is bluish-green in color. The color varies quite a bit though robin’s egg blue is the most highly prized.

History and Folklore

Many Native American tribes valued turquoise for ceremonial objects and amulets. The Apache believed that an amulet of turquoise would improve its wearer’s aim with a bow and arrow (or perhaps the turquoise was attached to either the bow or arrow, this is unclear).

Ancient Persians used turquoise extensively to decorate many objects from the mundane to the holy and wore the stones around their wrists or necks to warn them of approaching danger by changing color. (Turquoise does indeed change color in response to light and chemical reactions.)

Turquoise Correspondence

Turquoise is a birthstone for the month of December and a planetary stone for AquariusTaurus, and Sagittarius.

  • Angel: Zadkiel;
  • Gods/Goddesses: Buddha, the Great Spirit, Sopedu, Hathor, Estsanatleki;
  • chakra: throat;
  • Element: earthwaterair;
  • Planet: Neptune, Venus;
  • Tarot: Empress.


In the 13th century, turquoise was thought to protect the wearer from falling, especially from a horse. Used also to protect horses themselves when plated in their manes or attached to the saddle.

Attaching turquoise to a bow makes the arrows fly true to the mark.

Pieces of turquoise were set under homes to protect against evil spirits.
