Origin, Habitat, and History – Firoza Gemstone
These beautiful feroza gemstone have an interesting formation. They’re results of a chemical reaction that takes place when water containing specific minerals such as iron, copper, and aluminum leak through rocks. These metals oxidize in the presence of oil and water, forming clumps of Turquoise. Scientifically, Turquoise is a Hydrate Phosphate of Copper and Aluminium, with the chemical composition CuAl6(PO4)4(OH).
Turquoise is commonly found in round cut, oval, pear, rectangular, and cushion shapes.
Patrons across the world admire Firoza for its rich texture and colour. The oldest minings of Turquoise are in Khorasan of Persia (now Iran) and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. However, high-quality Original Firoza gemstones are also found in the mines of South-west America, Arizona, and New Mexico.
The history behind Firoza dates back to ancient Egypt. It is one of the world’s oldest gemstones.
Several archaeological excavations have also revealed that ancient Egyptian rulers preferred Turquoise jewellery. History also suggests that Chinese artisans were already carving this tone around 3,000 years ago. Turquoise is the national gem of Tibet and is believed to guarantee health, good fortune, and protection from evil. The name Turquoise, however, is derived from the French expression ‘Pierre torques’, which translates to “Turkish stone.”
