Where does it come from?
While its origin is contested, it is commonly believed that this Gem has originated from Turkey and was named after that country as “Turquoise”.
A more literal translation of the word “Pierre Turquin” translates to “Dark Blue Stone” which made us believe that this stone might originate from France.
Regardless of its origin, the Turquoise Bead is recognized all over the world and could have originated from more than one area of the globe.
How does it form?
Turquoise forms in areas with dry soil containing large copper deposits. When water containing the right minerals penetrates the rocks, turquoise veins form on the surface of the rock due to a chemical reaction. This is how chunks of natural turquoise are created.
Some pieces of Turquoise contain black or brown patches. Those patches are traces of the host rock. This is proof that you have a real Turquoise bead.
