African turquoise: It is a stone that brings structure, balance and prosperity where it is due. African Turquoise is a stone that hands over a key to new life with its offerings. This is a stone that awakens the soul to its intended purpose, encouraging the being to make positive impression while gaining and giving positive wisdom.
In the Hindu religion, the Sri Yantra is representative of a system that controls the universe, and the creative and divine forces within. The actual shape and components are meant to draw the eye outward and inward from the center, with each layer adding a different dimension to the experience of viewing. Overall, they represent the steps to integration of a whole self with a whole external world. There are 43 triangles in a Sri Yantra, with each representing a different step on the path to self.
The geometric unity within the pieces reflects the unity of the individual with the surrounding universe, and this pattern of repetition has long been shown to help balance the mind.
