What is Turquoise?
Turquoise is an opaque mineral that occurs in beautiful hues of blue, blue-green and yellow-green. It has been treasured as a gemstone for thousands of years. Isolated from one another, the ancient people of Africa, Asia, South America and North America independently made turquoise one of their preferred materials for producing gemstones, inlay and small sculptures.

Chemically, turquoise is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum. Its only important use is in the manufacture of jewelry and ornamental objects. However, in that use it is extremely popular - so popular that the English language uses the word "turquoise" as the name of a blue-green color that matches the stone. Very few minerals have a color that is so well known, so characteristic and impressive that the name of the mineral becomes so commonly used. Only three other minerals - gold, silver and copper have a color that is used in common language more than turquoise.

Turquoise Colors
Blue minerals are rare and that is why turquoise captures attention in the gemstone market. The most desirable color of turquoise is a sky blue or robin's egg blue. Some people inappropriately describe the color as "Persian blue" after the famous high quality material mined in the area that is now known as Iraq. Using a geographic name with a gem material should only be done when the material was mined in that locality.

Each pendant takes approximately 3-6 feet of wire, or more and 1 1/2 hours to complete, depending on the size and thickness of the stone. Argentium Anti Tarnish Sterling Silver is 930 pure as opposed to Sterling Silver which is 925 pure. Sterling Silver is alloyed with copper and other metals to make it stronger but that also accounts for why it tarnishes so easily. By using Germanium as an alloy the Sterling Silver becomes tarnish resistant and saves hours trying to polish your precious jewelry and that is why it is more expensive as well.

Gift wrapped in an jewelry pouch for giving or keeping.

Postage outside U.S. via First Class International (takes approx. 10+ days).
