Description

Turquoise has graced the halls and tombs of Aztec kings and Egyptian pharaohs, such as Tutankhamun, whose golden funeral mask is inlaid with turquoise. This blue stone with its rarity and its diverse beauty, the greatest allure to this gem remains its legendary history of how past and present cultures value its numerous mystical properties.

Turquoise first began to appear in North America around 200 B.C., where it was also used as ornament. The Southwest natives and Indian tribes of Mexico produced beautiful beads and necklaces from locally mined turquoise. This was a precursor to the explosion in turquoise jewelry that continues today.
