Turquoise

Turquoise has had a lasting impact on the life and culture of the Native peoples of the American Southwest. With documented records of turquoise use going back as early as 300 A.D in Arizona and New Mexico.  Originally called the "sky stone" turquoise was believed to possess sacred healing properties and the blue-green colors in the stones were thought to reflect the life-giving properties of water. Today turquoise is appreciated not only for its lasting beauty but also it's rich history.
