The word turquoise, which dates back to the 17th century was derived from the French language turques, since it was first brought to Europe from Turkey. Turquoise, the robin's egg blue gemstone worn by Pharaohs and Aztec Kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Turquoise offers protection, blessing, healing, good luck and longevity. Native Americans honor this versatile power stone. Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in the Sinai. Some of the finest turquoise today comes from Mexico and the U.S.
