Turquoise is a copper aluminium phosphate mineral with a hardness of 5 to 6. Its name means "Turkish Stone" because early trade routes brought it to Europe/Asia for thousands of years and is important in Native American jewellery.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say Turquoise is a stone of wholeness, promoting the sense of unity of the self and oneness with all that surrounds us. It is said to make one feel at home in both the physical and spiritual worlds.
