The Color Turquoise

“She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea,
dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.”

― Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Turquoise is a blend of green and blue. It is so named because the Turks were fond of the color and decorated many of their buildings with turquoise ceramic glazed tiles.

Turquoise has the calming, expansive nature of green and the cool, quiet flow of blue. It can bring to mind a particular quality in the sky before or after sunset, a calm, warm sea, a beautiful lagoon, a pure mountain stream or distant hills in the mellow light of late summer

Turquoise is the color of the deep subconscious. Since the lungs vibrate in the green range, turquoise also belongs to the lungs, especially to the higher vibration of the lungs, which is spirituality, creativity, intuition, imagination, and the synchronistic quality of bring “in tune” with nature, with oneself, with “the flow.” The process of psychic opening is assisted with the color turquoise, as well as violet, and wearing turquoise around the neck is good for the voice, expression, creativity, since the root urge of creativity is to express.

Holiday Happiness

1-1

Many people enjoy relaxing by the seaside in summer. The predominant colors are the blues of the sea and sky, which introduce a feeling of expansiveness and peace. Turquoise tempers the deeper blues with an extra sense of calm and comfort. The golden yellow of sand and sunlight energize the body’s systems, helping to restore balanced functioning by reducing anxiety and stress levels, and, creating happiness and clarity in the mind. It is no wonder with today’s hectic lifestyle that two weeks doing nothing and simply being on a beach in the sunshine is regarded by many as the perfect holiday and one which they will repeat each year with unfailing regularity.

The same color combination of blues and golds occurs in many desert or near desert conditions and it is perhaps significant that in the past many people have sought the deserts of the world as places of mysticism for contemplation, visions, and religious inspiration. With such isolation, very few distractions and the stimulus of blues gold, and yellows, directly affecting the function of the nervous system, such places encourage the deepest thought.
