The substance has been known by many names, but the word turquoise, which dates to the 17th century, is derived from the French word turques for “Turks”, because the mineral was first brought to Europe from Turkey, from the mines in historical Khorasan Province of Persia. Pliny the Elder referred to the mineral as callais and the Aztecs knew it as chalchihuitl.
The universal appeal of this mineral’s beauty makes it a great gift for mom, dad, daughter, spouse, friend, anyone you could think of.
