Kingman Turquoise hails from the Kingman Mine, AZ, U.S.A.

Turquoise is a soothing and strengthening stone, helping to guard against exhaustion, depression and panic attacks. It helps restore vitality and lift low spirits, balance emotions and combat aggression. The name Turquoise comes from the French name for the Turkish traders that brought the brilliant blue stone to Europe. Used for many centuries in the Middle and Far East, evidence of Turquoise use by Egyptian royalty dates as far back as 5,500 BC. Uniquely, there is also evidence of Pre-Columbian civilizations using this stone for ceremonial purposes and as currency. Turquoise was highly prized by both the Native American tribes of the Southwest and the Mayans, in some cases even more than gold.

Turquoise is only found in barren regions where acidic, copper-rich water reacts with ground minerals containing phosphorous and aluminum. Colors can range from the distinct sky blue found only in the Sleeping Beauty Mine (Arizona) to the vibrant greens found in the Kingman Mine (Arizona) to the bright medium blue typical of most turquoise. Turquoise is the birthstone for December
