A long appreciated gem, turquoise was mined for jewelry as early as the 1st Dynasty in Egypt. Only found in arid climates turquoise is formed from water seeping into cracks and gaps in sand and stone. The beautiful sky blue colors come from the copper minerals carried by the water. Naturally turquoise is cherished as a symbol of water and sky.
