Turquoise is a stone that has been mined and prized for over 6,000 years! From Persian and Egyptian royalty to Native People in Americas, people have used turquoise in jewelry. The name means “Turkish stone” as it came to Europe by way of Turkey. Legend has it that the Southwestern Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become “the fallen sky stone” known as turquoise. It represented life-giving water and the green tones of the earth. Because of the stone’s deep connection to the world around them, Native Americans saw turquoise as a protecting force. It drew in helpful spirits, repelled demons, brought prosperity and encouraged the free flow of thoughts in its wearer.

Turquoise has not faded in popularity since the early days of human civilization. Today, it is a versatile fashion statement and is still believed to hold beneficial properties. Turquoise is said to clear thoughts, open the heart and enhance spirituality. It is a gem of emotional healing and well-being. As a gift, it symbolizes well-wishes, good health and hopes for future prosperity.
