Paula says - "Turquoise is found in veins, sandwiched between layers of mother rock. Usually, the mother rock shows as veining or matrix patterns in rocks that are predominantly turquoise. This butterfly maiden, however, is carved from a piece of dark brown mother rock that has flecks of turquoise in it."

Butterfly Medicine

Butterfly represents transformation, the ability to go through changes in life with grace and lightness, like the plain caterpillar changing into a colorful butterfly. Butterfly's bright colors symbolize liveliness and playfulness. Butterfly helps us look at heavy and tense situations with a new, lighter perspective.

TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.
