About turquoise:  The name turquoise means "Turkish stone" because the trade route that brought it to Europe came via Turkey. Turquoise is a non-translucent stone of which the most valuable specimens are robin's egg blue or deep-blue azure.  It also comes in brown, yellow, and many shades of green. The veins are inclusions from nearby rock fragments or oxides that form during the creation of turquoise.

About Amazonite:  Amazonite is a type of feldspar, ranging in color from bright green to bluish green.   Like most gems, amazonite has a colorful folklore. Said to have been worn or named after the Amazon women warriors during the Bronze Age, amazonite was also reported to have been used by the Egyptians. Although its' name is derived from the Amazon River, no deposits have been found there!  Amazonite is known to help filter out stresses, and aids in communicating truth to others. 

About Apatite: The color of apatite is similar to beautiful tropical waters.  Apatite is actually the mineral that makes up the teeth and bones of all vertebrate animals. The name comes from the Greek word apate, which means, "to deceive." Apatite was often confused, therefore "deceiving" many, with some of the more valuable gems such as tourmaline, olivine, peridot, topaz and beryl.  Apatite's history with humans is long, yet surprisingly vague. While the stone has been associated with appetite suppression for centuries, few other traditions are known. Give in to the inspirational qualities of the Apatite crystal stone and encourage a peaceful respite from the confusion that comes from adulting in the modern world.
