A word about Turquoise
Turquoise is an opaque blue-to-green mineral dating back to 6,000 B.C. A revered and valuable stone, turquoise mining and trading happened throughout ancient cultures all over the world. Therefore, it is not surprising that turquoise is one of the world’s most popular stones. Today, you will find turquoise mines located in the western United States, Mexico, Iran, Afghanistan, China and Australia. It is the birthstone for the month of December, and is a stone of friendship and purification. In some Native American cultures, warriors and hunters wore the stone for protection and good fortune.
Care for your turquoise by avoiding sharp blows, hot water, and household chemicals. Turquoise is relatively soft making it vulnerable to scratches. Because turquoise is a porous stone, it can absorb body oils or other oils causing the stone to yellow over time. Do not use an ultrasonic cleaner on Turquoise and avoid chlorine.
