Turquoise

History

The word “turquoise” was derived from the French term “pierre turquoise,” meaning “stone of Turkey.” This was after a 16th century European misconception that the stones originated in Turkey, when in fact they were first discovered in Persia. Turquoise is formed over millions of years with a chemical reaction when water leaks into rocks containing copper and aluminum minerals. Experts believe turquoise was first mined in 6000 B.C., by ancient Egyptians. Today, it is mined in countries all around the world, including, China, Iran, the United States, and Tibet.

Turquoise jewelry was first discovered within Egyptian tombs that date back to 3500 B.C. Cultures around the world have embraced the tradition of turquoise jewelry in the belief that it possesses healing and protective powers. While turquoise jewelry continues to be worn by many who believe it will attract money, luck, and love, today, it is also a prevalent fashion accessory and serves as a December birthstone, as well as the stone for the fifth and eleventh wedding anniversaries.

Types of Turquoise

Turquoise may range in color from light blue to green. It may contain a variety of natural definitions, from white to black, which adds a one-of-a-kind look to each stone. While the variances in color and matrix do not affect the value of the stone, there are properties that make some turquoise more expensive than others, most likely color uniformity and vividness. Turquoise jewelry is often treated in order to bring out the vibrant color and radiance of each stone.

Caring for Your Turquoise Jewelry

Like all natural gemstones, turquoise can be damaged if not cared for properly. Clean with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth, drying after washing. Avoid scratches by storing separately from other jewelry. Avoid exposure to oils, perfumes, and chemicals that may affect the stone’s vivid color.
