Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of ancient protection, bright and opaque, healing to the touch, soothing to the eye, as if Don carved it from heaven and brought it to earth!
The best stones come from Australia, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet and south-western USA. Turquoise may also be found in France, Britain, Russia, Poland, Arabia, Egypt, China, Peru and Mexico. The bright, stunning hue of the turquoise crystal has been discovered in the ceremonial masks and battle gear of the Aztecs, a tribe that revered this decorative stone for its ability to provide personal protection against negative forces. Don's expression of native design is the perfect setting for Earth's most precious Sleeping Beauty.
