Turquoise is formed when copper or aluminum deposits mix with other minerals or is changed by various weathering agents. The combination of minerals can help determine from where a piece of turquoise was mined and how that affects its coloration and patterning. Most turquoise isn’t just solidly bluish-green, but rather is patterned with copper colored or darker areas of coloration. Turquoise is often set in silver or sterling silver, but also looks just as gorgeous contrasted with yellow gold.
