Gemstones have long been treasured by humanity. Gemstones are valuable for their beauty and mystical qualities. Gemstones have beautiful colours that are attractive to the eye as well as energies that are healing to the soul, body, and mind. Turquoise and Larimar are two of these appealing gemstones that are sometimes confused because of their similar looks. The name turquoise has a history that stretches back to the 6000 B.C., and turquoise carries blue and green tones. Given that it was originally from Turkey when it was first introduced to Europe, the name turquoise is derived from a French word that signifies Turkish.
