“Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic.”
While turquoise has been known by many different names through the ages, the current name 'turquoise' was coined in the 17th century, and comes from the French for Turkish. This is because the stone was brought to Europe through Turkey, from mines in Persia.
The Aztecs referred to turquoise as chalchihuiti. They inlaid turquoise along with gold, malachite, jade or shells into masks, knives, and shields. Wax or natural resins were used to bond the turquoise to the base materials. The image on the right shows an aztec mask inlaid with turquoise.
This pendant pairs well with the 'Linea' earrings.
