The name turquoise is thought to come from Levantine traders commonly known as the Turks. It has been used for thousands of years as an ornamental object and for human adornment. While the name indicates its color, turquoise actually is found in shades of green, greenish blue, sky blue as well as the commonly known color of turquoise, often mottled with black or brown patches, and used in much of the American Indian jewelry.
