    Turquoise meaning "Turkish Stone" comes from European markets in the Middle Ages, who received it from Turkish traders who brought it from Persia. Turquoise beads were used by the Egyptians as early as 5500bc. The Navajo and Hopi (Native Americans) in Arizona value Turquoise as an attractor of prosperity and fertility of the soil and treasure it as a powerful success and good luck stone. Supposed to be a stone of communication, making one more eloquent, loving, creative and honest. Also considered a stone of friendship. Birthstone for December.

    These are a form of natural turquoise that has a soft consistency. It must undergo a stabilsation process to make it suitable for use. The process involves adding dye and resin, under pressure, this absorbs into the rock hardening and enhancing the colour. Most Turquoise available today has been stabilised.
