DIAMONDS are the toughest gem in the world, and can be found in 6 of the 7 continents across the world (sorry Antartica). Many times referred to as the "King of Gems", diamonds symbolize light as when its colorless facets catch the sun, they display the entire color spectrum. Diamonds have also been know as a strong symbol of invincibility in the wearer.
TURQUOISE got its name from early trade routes - Europeans ended up getting the stone from the Turkish bazaars. Turquoise has been a prominent stone throughout most cultures for thousands of years. It is seen as a symbol of wisdom and nobility.
KINGMAN: The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of (if not the) oldest and highest producing mine in Arizona. Native Americans found the mine over 1000 years ago. It is famous for both its sky blue turquoise on one side of the mine and its green turquoise on the other side (via Turquoise Mountain). Its sky blue variant is the most expensive and sought after turquoise specimen, and the greener variant rivals Sleeping Beauty in value and demand.
