From India, this listing is for a turtle carved from fuchsite. This little turtle, which is deep, saturated green, was carved in India by a small cottage business, it was not mass produced. Fuchsite is green muscovite (mica) and is sometimes called chrome mica.
Mythic lore has associated the turtle especially with the fertility and sageness of the great goddess, the moist, shadowy, lunar qualities of yin, and the primeval waters in which all things have thier supported beginning.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared with what lies within us. -Oliver Wendell Holmes
Hold fuchsite in your hand to feel a linking of the mind with the heart. When there is a connection of the intellect of the mind with the emotions of the heart, intuition and inspiration become stronger and clearer. Fuchsite is a reminder not to live too much in your head, always bring your heart into the equation. Fuchsite can be laid directly on the heart or worn at heart level, its beautiful energy will radiate out from the heart, clearing as it goes as the color green corresponds with the heart chakra.
