Turquoise is a wonderful crystal to use for love. It gives healing, joy, luck, and longevity. Turquoise is prized in many cultures: Native American, Egyptian, and more. In fact the word comes from the French, and actually means Turkish.

Today you can find the stone in the countries of Iran, China, Tibet,  Australia, Afghanistan, Chile, Mexico, and the United States. According to the U.S. Department of the Interior ” Chemically, a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminum, it is formed by the percolation of meteoric or groundwater through aluminous rock in the presence of copper. For this reason, it is often associated with copper deposits as a secondary mineral, most often in copper deposits in arid, semiarid, or desert environments. For thousands of years the finest intense blue turquoise in the world was found in Persia…. This changed during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s when modern miners discovered or rediscovered significant deposits of high-quality turquoise in the western and southwestern United States. Today … the majority of the world’s finest-quality turquoise comes from the United States, the largest producer of turquoise.”
