Turquoise is a semi-precious ornamental stone. In ancient times, it was called no other than " the stone of happiness». He was credited with healing and magical properties. Turquoise was used to make jewelry that was worn as a talisman. The gem was discovered more than 5000 years ago BC. The first stones were found in Ancient Egypt in the tomb of Queen Zara. Later, the gem was found in other countries. In mythology, it is said that turquoise is the bones of people who were destroyed by an unhappy love. Their hearts gave out, and they died of unrequited feeling. Modern scientists have found that there is nothing in common between these gems and human bones, so the myth of unhappy lovers is just a fairy tale. Turquoise is a mineral that consists of copper, zinc, potassium and other elements, but the healing and magical properties of the stone are still believed.
