Desert Twilight Jewelry Theme:
*Desert Twilight is a WhiteRock color scheme that is hand made using a specific combination of stones. The stone combination is made up of the following colors: purple, blue, and opal. These colors are made using the highest grades of stones.

*Blue: The real stones that are used in different instances for blue are Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, Kingman Turquoise, and other high quality turquoise stones.
*Purple: The real stones that are used in different instances for purple are Sugilite, Charoite, Magenta Turquoise, and Purple Oyster Shell.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is October's birthstone. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens one's psychic and mystical qualities.
