Stories and legends

The turquoise stone did not always have this name. The Persians called him “Firuze” or “Ferozah” which translates to victorious. In Europe, this mineral was named “Calläis”, translating “beautiful stone”. Then, during the 16th century, the French gave it the name Turkish stone, then turquoise.

Turquoise stone is composed of hydrated copper and aluminum phosphate. It therefore belongs to the mineral group of phosphates. It has a color varying from deep blue to bright blue-green.

In fact, it is its copper and iron content that colors this fabulous stone. The higher the percentage of copper, the more intense the blue color will be. Chromium modulates shades of green and iron provides a yellow to brown color.

The iron and copper content of the stone depends on the nature of the terrain. Depending on the color of the mineral, it is possible to determine its origin and where the stone was located. It is mainly located in dry and arid places, such as the deserts in Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey or the United States.

This stone has been known since the dawn of time. Its origins date back more than 6,000 years to the time of ancient Egypt. When the tomb of Queen Zar, queen of the first Egyptian dynasty, was opened, archaeologists discovered that she wore a bracelet decorated with turquoise. Even Tutankhamun's mask was decorated with turquoise.

As for the Persians, they used this mineral as currency to barter and obtain valuable objects. They also believed that turquoise protected them against the evil eye and harmful influences.

On the American continent, a large number of civilizations inlaid turquoise into the making of masks, notably among the Aztecs. Furthermore, they attributed such powerful power to this stone that their God of fire was nicknamed “Master of Turquoise”.

The Apaches dedicated this stone to the Goddess of change. Hunters attached a turquoise to their arrow so as not to miss their target. The Navajo Indians used this mineral for its healing properties. They also made beautiful jewelry from this stone, which sold throughout the world.

In 1805, following discoveries during archaeological excavations in Egypt, the creation of turquoise jewelry multiplied. The fame of this fabulous stone exploded and a neo-Egyptian style spread throughout Europe.

Nowadays, the intensive use of real turquoise has caused the depletion of many deposits. Thus, the prices of turquoise increased. It remains extremely popular with jewelers.

The main deposits are located in South Africa, Tibet, the United States, Peru, etc.
