Science and mythology of the Norseman.


Turquoise

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum. The general perception of Turquoise is 70% blue and 30% green. In traditional thought, Turquoise unites earth and sky. Turquoise reflects the color of the world at the vernal equinox, as the blues of winter melt into the greens of spring.[1]

Wndsn: Turquoise, Sunstone, and Vegvisir

Turquoise has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. In many cultures of the Old and New World, this gemstone has been esteemed as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune, a symbol of wisdom, nobility as well as the power of immortality. Turquoise is the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.

Historically, Turquoise is credited with the property of securing friendly regard. For travel, Turquoise protects you and your possessions against theft, loss or attack, helps prevent accidents, and especially falls. Turquoise tempers excesses, restores calm after a storm, relieves stress, and neutralizes extremes.

We use Turquoise  in all media and materials; matte, glossy, printed, plotted, woven, embroidered; in fabric, film, foil, string, plastic, metal - every material and every technique gets its own specific and customized color profile; always based on and compared to the original Turquoise.
