The vivid hues of turquoise have made it one of the world’s most popular stones. The name is a delightful mix of European and Middle Eastern. “Turquoise” is the French word for Turkey, the country that first brought this beautiful stone to Europe. The stone is mostly found in arid regions, including the great American Southwest.
