As the oldest documented gemstone in human history, turquoise has inspired lore and legends throughout time and civilizations. According to Persian mythos, a glimpse of the new moon’s reflection in a turquoise grants the ability to elude evil and gather good fortune. In the Middle Ages, turquoise was said to keep from harm those who fell from horses or while walking—no small claim given that such injuries were often lethal during that time. And in tales told by the tribes of the Apache Nation, turquoise was believed to aid the accuracy of aim during hunting.
