Folklore

The Incas and Aztecs believed the stone had the power to bring good fortune.

In Victorian times, it was thought to mean ‘forget me not’.

It is now thought that wearing turquoise gemstones imparts a long life to the wearer. It is also thought that it can warn the wearer of impending illness or danger by changing colour.

It is the gemstone associated with December birthdays and is believed to provide love and happiness.
