Turquoise is an hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium. It 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, providing a uniqueness to each stone. It was believed that the blue and brown within the gemstone symbolised the unity of the earth and sky. 

Found mainly in arid areas such as Mexico, Southern U.S.A. and Iran, as the dry, hot climate assists in its formation. The U.S. state of Nevada boasts at least 20 different varieties. 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.
