Depending on the setting, turquoise fits almost any occasion. It comes in a wide range of colors, from white to blue to green to yellow. Stones with a higher copper content have more of a blue hue. Higher iron content cause a more greenish hue. Appearing in ancient Egypt as early as 6000BC in amulets and adornment for King Tut and Cleopatra, turquoise has been used for centuries for personal protection, calm and a good luck charm. Native Americans considered it a sacred stone. Used for wholeness, Truth, circulation, communication.
Long thought of as a symbol of strength, courage and protection, arrowheads are often thought of as native american in origin, but have been made and used since the stone age.
