Turquoise is a stone of self forgiveness, self acceptance and the release of useless regrets.

Turquoise History and Uses:
Turquoise is a 16th century French name “pierre turquoise” meaning Turkish stone, because it was bought in the Turkish bazaars on the trade route from Iran, where it was mined, to Europe.
