Birthstone for December: Turquoise

Posted by Fiona Caldwell on

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye.

Birthstone

Properties of Turquoise

The colour Turquoise is associated with meanings of refreshing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, emotional balance, good luck, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty.

Sources of Turquoise

Turquoise is a mineral usually found in association with copper deposits and is sometimes mined as a by-product of copper mining. The ancient mines of Meshed (Iran) are considered to be the best source of the finest turquoise. Fine Turquoise is also produced in Arizona and New Mexico
