Azure Sky, Robin’s Egg Blue: Vivid shades of turquoise define the color that’s named after this gemstone.

Turquoise is thought to be one of the first gemstones ever discovered, it's a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium, which has a unique bright blue/green coloring. Turquoise is an opaque gemstone, often mottled with veins of its host rock. This popular gemstone was used by ancient Egyptians, Aztecs and Native Americans for art and jewelry.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December and the 11th anniversary stone, making it a great gemstone for a special gift.

The turquoise birthstone was thought to possess many beneficial powers, like guaranteeing health and good fortune. From the 13th century on, it was believed to protect the wearer from falling (especially off horses), and would break into several pieces at the approach of disaster. Hindu mystics maintained that seeing a turquoise after beholding the new moon ensured fantastic wealth. This turquoise birthstone also played an important role in the lives of Native Americans. The Apache thought turquoise could be found by following a rainbow to its end. They also believed that attaching the December birthstone to a bow or firearm made one’s aim more accurate. The Pueblo maintained that turquoise got its color from the sky, while the Hopi thought the gem was produced by lizards scurrying over the earth.

In European tradition, the gift of a turquoise ring means “forget me not.” Turquoise is considered a national treasure in Tibet, where it is believed to grant health, good fortune and protection from evil. December's birthstone also imparts peace to those who wear it.

Turquoise Gemstone Beads are of ancient origin occurring in the whole range of hues from sky blue to grey-green. The material has black or brown veins or blotches running through it, which are known as `turquoise matrix`. Turquoise treatments may include waxing, color enhancement, and `reconstructed turquoise` made from pulverized turquoise.

Turquoise is generally stable to light, but high heat can cause discoloration and surface damage. It dissolves slowly in hydrochloric acid, and it can be discolored by chemicals, cosmetics, and even skin oils or perspiration.

It’s safe to clean Turquoise jewelry with warm, soapy water, but it should never be cleaned with steam or ultrasonic cleaners. Some Turquoise is treated to improve its surface appearance. Heat or solvents can damage the treated surfaces.
