The name turquoise is derived from the French "turquois" meaning "Turkish" because the mineral was first brought to Europe through Turkey. However, turquoise has been mined and valued for thousands of years, namely by the ancient Egyptians and Aztecs. It's green-blue color comes from the copper content.
