Description

Turquoise

Alternate December Birthstone

A hydrous copper aluminum phosphate, turquoise was one of the first minerals to be valued as a gem. Turquoise is French for “Turkish,” because the ancient trade route from Iran, where the finest turquoise is still found today, went through Turkey. 7000-year-old turquoise beads have been found in Iraq. The Egyptians mined it in the Sinai in 3200 BCE. Native Americans have mined and worked turquoise for about 1000 years. A stone of wholeness and well-being, turquoise stimulates and harmonizes the throat (5th) chakra, empowering the shy to speak their truth and share wisdom.
