Turquoise to our Navajo people is important. Representing the "Blue World" it tells the Holy People... "We know where we come from".
Our Diné say... When praying, have your turquoise so the Holy People can identify you.
"Here is one of our children... What are they asking for? Let's give it to them".
It also gives protection when roaming outside the sacred mountains.
Sometimes turquoise can be brittle. These necklaces are made from stabilized turquoise that will last.
