Metaphysical: One of December’s birthstones (the other is blue topaz or blue zircon), it's been traded in the Americas since long before the Europeans settled in North America. Turquoise is believed by many to be a "master stone" with many beneficial properties. Among its powers are to aid in interpersonal communication, with healing from chronic problems, aid with digestion, and even assist with mastering a fear of public speaking.

About: Turquoise is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum, and is one of a group of copper-containing gemstones that includes malachite, azurite and chrysocolla. It’s got a Mohs hardness of about 6, and is mined in Iran, the Sinai peninsula, China and the US. For many collectors, US Turquoise is the favorite by far, as it’s regulated to be actual turquoise; this interest combined with mining regulations mean that American turquoise has come to be both highly valued and in shorter supply.
