The Carico Lake color palette ranges from the highly unique electric greens to sky blue; from teal to mossy, earthy greens. And rarely, a nugget with both earth and sky color. The highest grade Carico Lake Turquoise is a gem quality American turquoise. Hard enough to be cut naturally, the high zinc content paints the stone an astonishing lime green color with a unique spider web matrix, creating a much sought after and collectible stone. The color is due to its zinc and copper content. Carico Lake stones can also display a dark blue-green color with a black spider web matrix. Recent finds are producing many new blue tones with even, black matrix. The colors and scarcity of Carico Lake turquoise make it a valuable addition to any collection. The Carico Lake mine also hosts another precious stone, faustite, which features a bright lime green color due to its higher zinc content.
Turquoise is sacred to both Native American and oriental traditions. It is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise is also a powerful crystal for relieving stress. It is also said to protect against pollution in the environment, and to bring abundance. Turquoise is said also help speed the healing process, and is known as a master healer stone. It is very powerful for grounding and protection also. Turquoise is associated with the throat chakra primarily.
