Loose Turquoise Gemstones Dealers-Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum. Turquoise is relatively soft (5.5 to 6 on the Mohs scale), so it is usually not cut as a faceted gem, but rather used for cabochons, or carved into beads, figurines, or other ornamental objects.
The first recorded use of turquoise dates back to around 6000 BC when it was mined in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. It was then used extensively by the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans who carved it into jewelry and ornaments. Turquoise was introduced to China in the 13th century and quickly became a favorite of the Chinese elite who used it extensively in both jewelry and art.
Turquoise is a semi-precious stone that has been used for centuries for its healing properties. The stone is believed to promote physical and emotional well-being, and is thought to be particularly effective in relieving stress and anxiety. Turquoise is said to promote communication and understanding, and is thought to be helpful in promoting self-expression and creativity.
