In many cultures of the Old and New Worlds, this gemstone has been esteemed for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman. It really does have the right to be called a 'gemstone of the peoples'. The oldest evidence for this claim was found in Egypt, where grave furnishings with turquoise inlay were discovered, dating from approximately 3000 B.C.. In the ancient Persian kingdom, the sky-blue gemstones were earlier worn round the neck or wrist as protection against unnatural death. If they changed colour, the wearer was thought to have reason to fear the approach of doom. Meanwhile, it has been discovered that the turquoise certainly can change colour, but that this is not necessarily a sign of impending danger. The change can be caused by the light, or by a chemical reaction brought about by cosmetics, dust or the acidity of the skin.

Labradorite This mineral is an infused stone. The colors found in particular pieces show the shimmering quality of the Aurora Borealis. Only in the northern lands can rocks be fused (or influenced) by the awe-inspiring essence of light crystallized in the sky. When the Aurora Borealis occurs, it is ephemeral and shadowy as well as dramatic and flaming in intensity. The ethereal essence is retained in the ore and the delight of light movement within the structure of the rock calls forth the 'yes' response. The infused nature calls forth the spiritual part of oneself. The mineral can be worn by all astrological elements.
The air signs are given the ability to reveal inner beauty with a measure of dignity. Water signs are given the ability to show how necessary their presence is in the expression of beauty for others to experience. Earth signs are given tremendous validation and self-awareness with this ore. They will experience how the earth can capture and make concrete for others the qualities they possess. The fire signs are shown how to release their energy in the proper amounts so that they do not drain themselves creatively or in the expression of their internal beauty.
Through the process of using this stone, the wearer realizes that all beauty is contained within, but it must be given or showcased sometimes on a broad canvas for the exceptional power to be known by self and others.
