The word 'turquoise' comes from a derivitive of 'Turkey stone' because a fine sky-blue specimen originated in Turkey, once Persia. Of course, now kinds of turquoise have been found all over the world including the southwest United States where this central piece originated.
I've been making jewellry in preparation for the holiday season, bringing out from my stash my collected bits like these Tibetal brass, turquoise and carnelian beads and, of course, my turquoise. Some necklaces are available now but will be offered half-price in a coming newsletter.
