Turquoise is a copper aluminum mineral. Copper causes its bright blue and its greenish shades are speckles of iron within. Its name came from French “Pierre turquoise” meaning “Turkish stone” due to Turkey trading vast amounts of Turquoise because of its position between Europe and Asia. Turquoise is one of, if not the longest used stone in all of human history.
Beads have been found in Iran dating back to around 5000 B.C., and the Egyptians were mining Turquoise around 3200 B.C. About 1000 years ago Native Americans began to find out about Turquoise and used it for jewelry, weapons, and amulets. They believed Turquoise would open their mind up to the Infinite possibilities the universe has to offer. The stone has been commonly found in Native American burial sites on both continental Americas.
