Turquoise has been historically lauded as a stone of protection and was worn as a talisman by kings and warriors, alike. Thought to be holy and a bearer of good fortune, turquoise may be the oldest stone in man's history. The name turquoise is French for "Turkish stone" and harkens to a time of trade routes that navigated from central Asia, through Turkey and beyond.
