Turquoise Meaning and Healing Properties
Introduction to Turquoise
Early Europeans named turquoise Pierre Turquoise because they believed that turquoise came from Asia Minor, but this was only because Europeans first obtained this stone from the trade there. Turquoise comes from desert and arid regions, such as Iran, Sinai Peninsula and Tibet of China. Turquoise is formed by the hydration of the oxidation zone of the copper-aluminum deposit, which gives it a blue hue, and its green color comes from iron impurities.
Turquoise has always been popular as amulets. In Renaissance Europe, almost all gentlemen’s rings are inlaid with turquoise, in order to avoid encountering misfortune in duels or horseback riding. In many cultures, sky blue turquoise and earth red or orange stones (such as coral and carnelian) are put together to pray for blessings at the same time.
