Used for thousands of years in a variety of decorative applications, turquoise has maintained its allure to the present day. Numerous cultures have used this versatile stone. The ancients valued turquoise, not only for its beauty, but for the powers it was believed to possess. Worn as a talisman to keep its owner from harm, turquoise was also thought to bring foresight, wealth and peace of mind. Native Americans utilize turquoise to create jewelry, amulets, decorative inlays and other ornamental objects. Many of these items are found in the collections of our National Museum of the American Indian. Examples of turquoise can also be found in our gem and mineral collections, National Museum of Natural History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
