Turquoise is a sky-blue or green translucent to opaque basic aluminium phosphate that contains copper. It has been prized as a gemstone for millennia. The name “turquoise” comes from the French, meaning “Turkish stone”, because it was first transported to Europe via a Turkish nation.
Turquoise, the captivating sea-green stone of the ancients, represents wisdom, tranquility, protection, good fortune, and hope. Ancient peoples believed in its profound power to protect, as well as its tranquil energy and its association with enduring love.
