As one of the oldest stones on mother earth, Turquoise is formed when a chemical reaction between copper, aluminum, and other minerals deposit in water, creating the beautiful vibrantly blue stone that has taken millions of years to come into being.
Like humans, no two Turquoise gemstones are the same. Just as our upbringing, our climate, and our DNA affect our appearance, different minerals affect the appearance of Turquoise.
Copper enhances the blue hue in Turquoise, while a higher presence of aluminum causes a deeper green shade. When zinc is present, Turquoise can take on a yellow-green color, which is very rare and found in only a few places, including Blue Ridge mines in Nevada.
