This Chartres Labyrinth features a lovely Turquoise gemstone from Tibet. Tibet has been swallowed by its powerful neighbor China, and subjected to routine humiliation and the debasement of their ancient culture. Despite representing one of the oldest and most civilized cultures in our world, Tibet can no longer be found on a map. Our Tibetan Turquoise comes from the Himalayan Mountains of Western Tibet. It is usually a wonderful blue-green in color. Tibetan Turquoise is worn by most of the people in both Tibet and Nepal, and is sought after for its spiritual & religious powers as well as its beauty. We believe that using beautiful stones from Tibet helps assure the employment of miners, improve families' lives, and does some small thing to make war less likely and peace more so.
