Turquoise has been revered and loved for thousands of years in multiple locations around the world. The earliest known Turquoise jewellery dates back to the very dawn of civilisation, when Turquoise bracelets were found on an Egyptian mummy dating back to 5500 BCE.
Archaeological evidence shows that Native American tribes mined Turquoise in the American Southwest for at least a millennium. As in other cultures, the Turquoise was used for decorations and shamanic purposes, as well as being a valuable trade good. Southwestern tribes, particularly the Navajo, Zuni, Apache, Hopi, and Pueblo peoples consider Turquoise to be a protective stone and one that bestows ‘goodness’ on its owner.
