Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness.

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.
