Turquoise. December's Birthstone.

Turquoise was one of the most popular gemstones used in ancient Egypt. It is said to bestow wealth and happiness on anyone that receives it. The healing properties of turquoise are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to the throat, lungs, asthma, teeth, depression. and infection. Turquoise is also used to enhance creativity, serenity and spiritual bonding. Turquoise is also the birthstone of those born in December. The poem goes.

"If cold December gave you birth
The month of snow and ice and mirth
Place on your hand a turquoise blue
Success will bless whatever you do."

Here is some of my collection of turquoise jewellery. I hope you like it.
