Highly regarded by ancient civilizations for its unique aqua coloring, turquoise is a rare phosphate of copper that only forms in the earth's most dry and barren regions. The name turquoise derives from the fact that this gemstone was brought to Europe from eastern Mediterranean traders, known as Turks. Colors can range from green and greenish blue to sky blue. Turquoise is a birthstone for December.
