Natural Turquoise

The derivation of the name turquoise is clouded in mystery but may be a result of the stone coming from the Orient or Persia by way of Turkey. The gem turquoise owes it's beauty almost entirely to its superb color. It has been used for ornamentation since 3000BC and possibly before.

Turquoise supposedly helps one to start new projects. Turquoise has been thought to warn the wearer of danger or illness by changing color. In the 13th century, Turquoise was thought to protect the wearer from falling especially from horses. Legend has it that the Indians believed that if turquoise was affixed to a bow, the arrows shot from it would always hit their mark. It was also believed to bring happiness and good fortune to all. Turquoise started being used before 4000 BC.
