Turquoise has been in use for thousands of years, and is one of the oldest stones to be made into jewelry. It is also one of the recognized birthstones for those born in December (along with zircon, tanzanite and blue topaz).
Are you wondering about the "meaning" of turquoise? Turquoise is said to be a "purification" stone and is often described as "powerful" - it may dispel negative energies and protect you from negative influences. In addition to all that, this beautiful December birthstone is said to promote inner relaxation and calm; it might even make your day less stressful!
