All About Turquoise

“A turquoise given by a loving hand carries with it happiness and good fortune."

Turquoise is a blue to green opaque mineral that is made up of copper and aluminum. It has been an esteemed gemstone and worn in jewelry and ornamentation for thousands of years thanks to its unique and beautiful coloration.

The name Turquoise is derived from the French, 'Pierre Turque' meaning 'Turkish Stone'. The original trade routes that brought turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia came through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars.

Turquoise is a powerful stone - when worn or carried, it is a talisman of luck, success, ambition and creativity. Most crystal and gem gurus say that it is a lucky talisman to carry when playing sports or travelling, as it aids in safety and balance.

Turquoise is one of the birthstones for those born under the sign, Sagittarius, between November 22 and December 21. Sagittarians are known to be optimistic, kind, and adventurous, and their outlook on life is extremely positive.
