Turquoise is said to bring good health, fortune and peace

Turquoise is a very unique gem because it is never transparent and it is usually cut into cabochons. They are most commonly found in powder blue, sky blue, blue-green and with or without matrix (black veins). Although they can be found in white and even yellowish green. Turquoise have been highly valued for thousands of years by many cultures and it can be very costly. They were ones of the first stones to be mined and now many sites have been depleted. Navajo people believed turquoise stones were pieces of the sky that had fallen to Earth. It was introduced to the French by Venetian traders who had purchased the stones in modern day Iran (then a part of Turkey). Turquoise was widely traded because deposits are so rare. The only major turquoise deposits currently known are found in Iran, Egypt, Southwestern United States, and China. Turquoise also has the unique distinction of having a color named after it and not vice-versa. Turquoise is also supposed to brings good fortune, good luck, and a happy life.

It is also a present for the 11th wedding anniversary.
