Turquoise plays a big role in Tibetan jewelry for its spiritual powers as well as its beauty. Tibetans love Turquoise and  Red Coral in conjunction with it. Tibetans feel Red Coral is of the opposite spectrum of colour than Turquoise which has a spiritual effect on daily life. The dark-red colour worn by the sangha is effectively balanced by the blue and blue-green of turquoise. Jewelry with fine blue gems are worn for healing purposes by people with tired and bloodshot eyes.
