December Birthstone: Turquoise

Turquoise is one of the earliest stones used in jewelry across the globe - from Egyptian mummies to Native Americans of the Southwest, it has been used for thousands of years. Blue zircon suddenly emerged in the 1920’s, thanks to new developments in color-treatments that could transform dull brown gems to a brilliant turquoise blue, and has been popular ever since.
Whichever stone you prefer, you’ll have to agree that these sun-melted drops of turquoise-colored glass capture the essence of the traditional color!
