Turquoise; Legends & Facts

Turquoise Gemstone Necklace

Did you know that turquoise was one of the first gemstones to be mined? In fact, turquoise beads  were found in Mesopotamia dating back to 5000 BC!  Turquoise was found in Egypt from the reign of Pharaoh Semerkhet in 2900BC.

This ancient gemstone is still prized today and used in many different cultures including the American Indians. This blue/green stone varies in color depending upon the amount of iron and copper that is present.

Turquoise is considered a purification stone, dispelling negative engery and aligning the chakras when worn. It is also said to stabilize mood swings and enhance an inner calm.

I use turquoise in many of my designs. Shop today!
