Turquoise is one of the first gems to have been extracted and appreciated by the Egyptians who mined in the Sinai 4000 years BC. At that time, turquoise was used for adornment. It was also used as a talisman and, reduced to powder, as eye shadow. It is valued for its intense colour, which varies from sky blue to green blue depending on the amount of iron and copper it contains. It is often crossed by brown or black veins, and is then called matrix turquoise. Turkey, a country of transit, gave it its name. On a symbolic level, turquoise is perceived as a positive stone, supposed to bring sincerity and truth.
