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.
CHRYSOCOLLA is a copper ore semiprecious gemstone usually found in copper deposits. It is many times mistaken for turquoise or azurite, and can be found mixed with turquoise, azurite, and malachite. Chrysocolla is a stone of communication, symbolizing expression, teaching, and wisdom (especially in women).
