Turquoise is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium and is formed when copper rich solutions percolate into pre-existing rocks. The water content evaporates, the copper combines with aluminium and phosphorous to form Turquoise. Often a patchwork of the original host rock remains within the Turquoise. It was believed that the blue and brown within the gemstone symbolised the unity of the earth and sky. 

The name Turquoise originated from the 13th century when it was introduced to Europe by Venetian merchants, who called it "pierre turquois" or Turkis stone to suggest its origin. Most of the major ancient civilizations believed Turquoise to have potent healing and spiritual powers. It was also used as an amulet for protection especially by the peoples of the Americas. It was attached to arrows , horse saddles and other artefacts to assist with protection. 

Called “The Breath of Life” by the indigenous American cultures, reminding humans of their Spitituality. Said to attract good luck and friendships, instill calm and alleviate depression. 

Turquoise is the birthstone for Sagittarius and Aquarius.
