December Birthstone: Turquoise Earrings
Those born in December have the birthstone of Turquoise. This beautiful stone is associated with purity and is said to aid problem solving and soothe the mind. Many ancient cultures honoured turquoise as a universal stone and believed their minds would become one with the universe when worn. Turquoise comes in many different shades, and often the stone will come with matrix marks. These can vary from brown to black and are leftover from the rock host. The earrings are sterling silver, coated with rhodium to prevent tarnish, and fasten on the back using a post and butterfly. Stone size 0.8 x 0.6 cm.
