More on the Deep and Fascinating History of Turquoise
Native Americans have held turquoise sacred for centuries. The legend is that when Mother Earth was created, the Natives danced and sang – and they cried tears of joy when the rains came to deliver the vegetation that sustained them. According to Native American legend, tears fell to the Earth and became turquoise, treasured and sacred. Native American jewelers, especially the Zuni tribe trained from the time they were children to make the beautiful silver and turquoise jewelry from the natural materials around their lands, and they still do.
As previously mentioned the Egyptians also held turquoise in tremendously high regard. King Tut was just one of the many pharaohs who celebrated and venerated his death with turquoise covered sarcophagi.

Turquoise is A Timeless Treasure
