Turkish stone–Turquoise

Turquoise stone

The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars. Turquoise buried in Ancient Egyptian tombs is among the world’s oldest jewelry.Ancient Egyptians called turquoise “mefkat,” which also means “joy” and “delight.”It was initially named by Iranians “pirouzeh” meaning “victory”, and later the Arabs called it “firouzeh”.In Iranian architecture, the blue turquoise was used to cover the domes of palaces because its intense blue colour was also a symbol of heaven on earth.

The most-prized turquoise color is an even, intense, medium blue. But some consumers prefer a greenish blue, and some contemporary designers actively seek avocado and lime green turquoise.
