In healing, this Purple Turquoise crystal is believed to improve relationships, assist in both written and oral communication, and inspire compassion and forgiveness. It is also believed to ease issues affecting the throat, eyes, circulatory system issues, and headaches, and assists the body in the absorption of nutrients.
Because of recent shortages of Turquoise, soft, low-grade Turquoise is now being put through a process called stabilization that enhances its hardness and color. Purple Turquoise is a permanently dyed and stabilized crystal with gold and sometimes copper veining. It has recently become a favorite for jewelry makers and rock collectors. The stones carry the same metaphysical and physical healing benefits as Turquoise with the added benefit of the color purple and either gold or copper that is present.
