Turquoise: Turquoise, the robin’s egg blue gemstone worn by Pharaohs and Aztec Kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Yet, only its prized blue color, a color so distinctive that its name is used to describe any color that resembles it, results in its being used as a gemstone. Turquoise has been, since about 200 B.C., extensively used by Tibetans, southwestern U.S. Native Americans and by many of the Indian tribes in Mexico. For thousands of years the finest intense blue turquoise in the world was found in Persia, and the term “Persian Turquoise” became synonymous with the finest quality.
