Since at least the First Dynasty (3000 BCE), and possibly before then, turquoise was used by the Egyptians and was mined by them in the Sinai Peninsula, called "Country of Turquoise" by the native Monitu. There are six mines in the region, all on the southwest coast of the peninsula, covering an area of some 650 square kilometres (250 sq mi). The two most important of these mines, from a historic perspective, are Serabit el-Khadim and Wadi Maghareh, believed to be among the oldest of known mines. The former mine is situated about 4 kilometres from an ancient temple dedicated to Hathor.

In my experience there are two kinds of people. People who adore turquoise in every form and color. And people who yawn and go on to the next stone. I have to admit until I started doing healing work, I was in the second category. Then I fell in love with the total healing energy of the stone. So, for all you turquoise lovers, here’s legend and lore and the symbolic meaning of turquoise…

Turquoise comes from the word pierre Turquoise in the Old French, meaning “stone of Turkey.” This is because it first arrived in Europe via the trade routes through Turkey. Jewelry is often given for specific meanings. In the Orient, turquoise it was given to protect riders and steeds. In Russia giving the bride a turquoise and silver ring was intended to give peace of mind to the woman and to grant the man strength for labor, prosperity, and health. Arabians frequently wore turquoise between two pearls and were said to pray or wish on it at certain hours.

Some Native Americans carved turquoise into animal shapes placed and placed it in tombs to guard the dead. It was believed to attract beneficial spirits as it embodied the blue of the heavens and the green of the earth. Warriors fixed turquoise to the end of their bows to ensure accurate shots. It was (and is) a common stone for Zuni fetish carvings. Native American jewelry continues to feature turquoise in traditional and contemporary jewelry.

Turquoise is a very beloved stone among the Tibetan people. It is traditional in their jewelry. Over a long period of time, untreated turquoise can change color from bright and lively green and blue to dark brown and black. To the Tibetans, the symbolic meaning of this turquoise color change represents the life cycle of birth, old age and death.

In some traditions, turquoise was intended to be given not bought. When given as a gift, the meaning of turquoise was a pledge of affection. One meaning of turquoise is innocence. It is said to defend virtue. Another meaning of turquoise is to attract money, love, and happiness.
Turquoise stones and jewelry have been popular in many cultures around the world. It has been used for protection, courage, friendship, and luck. Many healers are attracted to turquoise because it brings blessings and healing to their work.
