Adored for centuries, Turquoise has been carved and set into everything from royal thrones and daggers to jewellery and cups. The Egyptians believed Turquoise brought good fortune and made them invincible. They carved the stone into symbolic jewellery and statues. Use of Turquoise dates as far back as 5500 B.C. It was believed to prevent accidents and cure diseases of the head and the heart. One legend suggests that throwing a piece of Turquoise into a river would bring rain. Turquoise was a sacred stone to many Native Americans. Medicine men used Turquoise in their healing practices. Often carved into the shape of animals, Turquoise was placed in tombs, believed to guard the dead and invite protective spirits.
