The history of Turquoise is quite remarkable and an interesting fact of global history. Turquoise was first discovered in Egypt about 6000 B.C., it was coveted by spiritual leaders, healers and the leaders of the first great organized government of mankind. Nomadic Traders took Turquoise to distant lands to introduce and trade it to other societies where it became popular and increased demand.

Turquoise was discovered in Persia about 4000 years ago and the Persian culture also considered Turquoise as having spiritual powers. Again, nomadic traders took Persian Turquoise to the market place and it became in demand by many people in many other different regions of the world.

Bisbee Turquoise – Turquoise Value

Bisbee Turquoise is quite possibly the most valuable Turquoise in earth for its mineral content and the fact that Turquoise may be one of the most metaphysical gemstones on earth.

Turquoise was originally found in Egypt about 5500 B.C. – Scriptures show that Spiritual leaders of the time prophet-sized that Turquoise was brought to earth by the powers above and that is got its color from the heavens. If you look up in the sky, it is blue and so was the Egyptian Turquoise that they found. Kings, Pharaohs and important past gods and goddesses tombs that have been excavated have Turquoise in them. In many cases such as King Tut, the actual embellishments of the coffins they were put to rest in are encrusted and inlaid with Turquoise. We invite you to read more on Egyptian Turquoise on our presentation page.

Down through the ages and across this planet, different cultures unrelated to each other have worshipped Turquoise and shockingly all have come to the same conclusion, Turquoise has Spiritual and Metaphysical powers that will bring the bearers of the gemstone happiness, good health, fortune and harmony in life. Many people globally worship Turquoise and live in harmony, unaffected by the traumatic turmoil and unrest around the world. The people of Tibet, in general, live in harmony with the earth and you will find Turquoise Alters in almost every home in Tibet. See Tibetian Turquoise.

It is the minerals in Turquoise that cause the sky blue coloration as well as its metaphysical properties. In the 1940′s, the Native American Indians of the Southwestern United States came to the height of their spiritual beliefs regarding Turquoise when Bisbee Turquoise was discovered and brought to them. Bisbee Turquoise immediately became sacred and was coveted by the Native American Indians and then onto other cultures extending to many areas of the globe. See Bisbee Turquoise and BisbeeTurquoise.com.

The Bisbee Mine in Southern Arizona has more concentrates of different conglomerate metaphysical minerals than any other known mine in the world. Turquoise is among several other important metaphysical minerals that have come out of the ground at the Bisbee Mine. Turquoise runs in and through different variations of metaphysical quartz and other very important minerals that are worshiped by spiritual mined peoples throughout the world.

We, Durango Silver Company,  believe Bisbee Turquoise is a very important gemstone that is very rare and very valuable to the spiritual world. See Turquoise Spiritual.
