What is Turquoise?
Turquoise is a semi-precious opaque gemstone that has been sought after in many of the world's historic civilisations. The stone's unique colour has a distinctly blue hue to it with hints of green in some cuts. In fact, the colour is so unique that Turquoise is the only gemstone to have had a distinctive colour named after it. The individuality of Turquoise shines through in the creamy brown-coloured veins that are often visible in the natural, hand-cut stones, so every piece has its own discernible character. It has a waxy lustre that makes it as pleasing to the touch as it is on the eye, so it's no wonder that it's been obsessed over for thousands of years.
