Not only is turquoise a rich-in-color stone, it yields a rich history that is believed to have started in Persia over 2,000 years ago. It hasn’t always been used for fashion purposes, it’s also been used for spirituality and supernatural beliefs over the years. It’s been said that the ancient Aztecs thought the stone to be sacred and made unique masks for ceremonies and rituals out of turquoise. Because there’s a significant amount in the Southwestern region of the United States, it’s easy to find intricate pieces in the area. Find out which pieces we found to be unique and luxurious.
