Ancient Egyptians were among the first to mine this stone. But today best quality is believed to come from Iran and also the southwestern part of the United states. Many Native Americans feel Turquoise is sacred. Many beautiful carvings of birds and animals can be found in tombs in this area. These creations were believed to protect the dead and to summon positive spirits. This gemstone was also used by Medicine Men and healers in this area.
