Jewels of the Spirit: Turquoise
Dwarves are a taciturn race, little given to unnecessary speech. Gimli's head throbbed after the first hour in the company of the Ringbearer's young kinsmen, awash in their constant chatter. It would be a long journey, indeed.
Yet as he stole a few moments of solitude that evening, he found his mind filled with the soothing essence of turquin, the clear blue stone representing speech and song, ancient chants, and the sounds of nature. And Gimli realized that the halflings' piping voices carried an undercurrent of lilting laughter and music bubbling like a fresh spring, the refreshment of remembered joy.
The fifth or throat chakra, represented by the color blue, responds to sound. Words, songs, chants and the sounds of nature touch our emotions deeply. Communication is paramount to this chakra, as is the concept of honesty, integrity and lack of pettiness in our words.
