TURQUOISE- Egyptians prized Turquoise as a Life Stone. The oldest pieces of jewelry set with this gem are four bracelets found on the mummified arm of Queen Zar. She ruled in Egypt about 5500 BC. Highly revered in Tibet, a Turquoise stone was carried throughout one's entire life. It was exchanged as currency & the finest stones were considered more valuable than gold. Turquoise is considered to be a symbol of generosity, sincerity, and affection.

TIGERS EYE was worn by Roman soldiers for protection in battle. Tiger Eye was thought to be all seeing due to its appearance.
