      Turquoise is the birthstone for those born in December. It represents a few key personality traits including honesty, creativity and happiness. It is the stone of wisdom and spiritual journeying. It automatically draws us in with its calming cool tones that can range from blue to green, often with a web of the remnants of the rock in which it was formed, or a matrix. Turquoise is one of the oldest protection stones and is known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.


      The Pharaohs of Egypt were known to adorn themselves with it and in Native tribes all across the Americas it was believed that by wearing this precious stone, the human mind became at one with the universe. In China, sculptors and artisans have been carving it for over 3,000 years.


      This gemstone is a symbol of self-realization, helping you to better understand yourself, your ideas, and emotions. It is a wonderful aid in regards to any type of analytical thinking.

      How to take care of your turquoise:

      Turquoise is stable to light and most natural elements, but high heat can cause these stones to break and even become discolored. When not in use, be sure to store them in a cool dry place. Our selection of handcrafted boxes are perfect! To clean your turquoise be sure to only use warm, soapy water and never use steam or chemical cleaners.

About 30 years after he passed away, Larimar was discovered in the Dominican Republic, which is to this day the only place it can be found!
