An eye-catching pear blue turquoise stone creates the shape of these simple drop earrings.
The word “turquoise” was derived from the French term “pierre turquoise,” meaning “stone of Turkey.” This was after a 16th century European misconception that the stones originated in Turkey, when in fact they were first discovered in Persia.
Turquoise is formed over millions of years with a chemical reaction when water leaks into rocks containing copper and aluminum minerals. Experts believe turquoise was first mined in 6000 B.C., by ancient Egyptians. Today, it is mined in countries all around the world, including, China, Iran, the United States, and Tibet.
