ELISA TURQUOISE is turquoise from the Elisa mine in Sonora, Mexico. It is highly desired for its unique green-blue shades (almost robin's egg color) of the stone - a nice, tropical departure from the sky blue shades of Sleeping Beauty.
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.
