Once thought to cure illness, turquoise is now celebrated for its bold and bright blue hues and many collectors hail the dark veiny matrix that can interweave the stone as its most beautiful feature.
Turquoise is one of the birthstones for December and the symbolic gemstone for 11th wedding anniversaries. The turquoise gemstone is typically sourced from dryer climates. It was among the first gems to be mined and has even been found buried in ancient Egyptian tombs. This makes the natural stone desirable not only for its distinctive colour, but the age-old folklore with which it is associated.
