Interesting Facts: One of the first gemstones ever to be mined, some turqouise jewellery can be dated back as more than 3000 years old. Turquoise gets its vibrant blue colour from the iron and copper within it. Persian turquoise was brought to Europe by the Turks and so the name Turquoise was derived from the word \”Turkish\”.
