Seller: paropamiso.gioielli (587) 100%, Location: Venezia, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 111569546312 A good quality turquoise bead. It had been sourced in the Himalayan regions. In traditional Tibetan medicine, turquoise or Yu is valued for its many healing properties. It is believed to absorb toxins from the body and aid healthy liver function. It can also be used to treat fevers, eye disease and is an antidote to poison. Turquoise is also worn as an amulet to give protection whilst sleeping. Many turquoise beads coming out of Tibet and the Himalayas have turned a deep green colour from being worn on the body and absorbing oils from the skin. Generally the bluer the colour the more prized it is as an amulet. Tibetans had several sources for turquoise in antiquity, including: Tibet, Iran and China. It is believed that Tibetan turquoise was sourced from Kongpo in the South East and Dargyal in the North East of Tibet. Apparently the best source was located in the Gangchen mountains of Nari (also spelled Ngari) in Western Tibet. It is also reported that Tibetan rulers of this region paid a regular tribute of turquoise to the kings of Ladakh (Laufer 1913, Clarke 2004). This bead is around 100 to 300 years old.
