Turquoise was used by ancient egyptians and aztecs.  Turquoise is also the birthstone for the month of December.  Turquoise was one of the first gemstones that I owned simply because you can wear this gemstone with almost anything.  You can even wear it with a nice pair of jeans and a shirt.  I personally like how it looks when I wear it with a black outfit or blouse.  Everybody has their own particular preference and style, yours might be different.

This gemstone can also be used as a wedding anniversary gift for the fifth and eleventh years of marriage.  The Southwest U.S. is a a significant source of Turquoise. Turquoise has been around for thousands of years.  This stone is popular in many parts of the world.  If you are a jewelry collector, a piece of turquoise jewelry will always catch your eye one way or the other.
