Turquoise was first found more than 7500 years ago and has had great significance to many cultures around the globe including the Romans, Ancient Egyptians, Native American Indians, Aztecs, Incas and early Tibetans.
They valued turquoise for it’s stunning appearance and the rich symbolism and deep spiritual significance it had for them. Today turquoise remains a very popular stone in contemporary jewellery and it pairs particularly well with the cool metallic lustre of sterling silver. Turquoise forms within rocks in dry climates in various countries including North America, Mexico and Egypt. It can vary in colour, with various hues of blue to green. Blue stones are rare in the natural world and it is often the sky blue type that is used within jewellery.
