Turquoise - color

Turquoise stones most commonly occur in turquoise, blue, and green colors, but sometimes specimens of yellowish-gray or blueish-green hues can be found. The most valuable specimens are those with a pure and intense blue color. Iron impurities are responsible for the green color, while copper inclusions contribute to the blue color. In some turquoise stones, black, brown, or gray inclusions of other minerals can be observed, creating interesting patterns in the form of veins on the surface of the stones. A characteristic feature of turquoise is a white streak and a waxy, matte luster. Due to its color, turquoise is sometimes mistaken for dyed howlite and magnesite.

Turquoise - application

Since ancient times, natural turquoise has been used as an ornamental stone in the production of amulets, talismans, vases, shields, or sculptures. Interestingly, turquoise stones were also used in ancient Egypt to decorate the funerary mask of Tutankhamun and the interior of his tomb. Considering the relatively rare occurrence of turquoise stones with an ideal, blue color, they are sought-after collector's items. Currently, turquoise stones are most commonly used in jewelry making, in the production of unique earrings, necklaces, rings, or bracelets. Turquoise in jewelry looks very good when combined with other natural stones such as amazonite, coral, hematite, or rock crystal. In our natural stone store, you will find turquoise cabochons in various sizes.
