About this Piece
Turquoise is a mineral that occurs when water containing elements like copper and aluminium leach through rock. It's vivid blue-green colour is decided by the level of elements, more copper produces a greener colour, more zinc a yellower tone. It is a porous stone so to keep it looking beautiful for a long time avoid temperature swings, chemicals, cosmetics, perfumes and ultrasonic cleaners.
