The beads I have used for these earrings are made from reconstituted turquoise, which gives the look of natural turquoise without the fancy price tag.
About 4000 years ago Ancient Egyptians made a form of reconstituted turquoise. It differed from todays product as they didn't actually use turquoise. They used crushed quartz which was then dyed, glazed and heated.
Today, as Turquoise is a fairly soft stone, it is easy to grind it to a powder, add resins and dye and form into blocks. These blocks are then made into beads.
Turquoise is associated with health, good fortune and protection from evil.
The Apache tribes believed that Turquoise attached to their bows would increase a warriors hunting skill and accuracy.
Turquoise is the birthstone for December and Sagittarius.
