Throughout the centuries, the intense sky-blue Iranian turquoise, known as “Persian Turquoise”, has been the most sought after. It is believed that the turquoise sourced from Persian mines was the finest and purest quality because it has little trace of the brown veining you might see from other sources.
This purity led Persians to believe that this incredible stone was the earthly connection to the heavens, such was the vibrancy if its blue hue. It was believed that great strength and protection could be gained from owning a Turquoise gemstone, so it was one of the most desirable pieces of jewellery around.
