Crusaders discovered this stone in Turkey, the country after which it is named. But turquoise had long been considered a holy stone by American Indians, who believed it was a magic stone providing protection against harm, as well as Gods and Goddesses in cultures as far apart as ancient Egypt and China. In ancient Egypt, turquoise was linked to the Sun Gods, considering it a symbol of rebirth, similar to lapis lazuli. During the Middle Ages it was thought to give women a sense of happiness and contentment, and make them virtuous and loyal. For men, it guarantee success and power.
