Turquoise has played a prominent role in jewelry for thousands of years. The stone is known for its robin egg blue, although some turquoise stones look more green than the typical light-blue-and-green mixture.
Regions well-known as significant turquoise sources include Persia, Ancient Egypt, and the Southwestern U.S. It is said that Ancient Persians and Ancient Egyptians associated spirituality and supernatural beliefs with the stone, as its pure blue color symbolizes the heavens. Ancient native American tribes and Aztecs also valued turquoise, and in the 19th century, Navajos began working with silver and started crafting the distinguished mixture of silver & turquoise jewelry that remains a popular style today.
