Turquoise is an opaque, bluish green mineral, a hydrated copper & aluminium phosphate, with a high aluminium content. The natural gemstone is rare and has been prized as an ornamental gemstone for thousands of years because of its unique hue. It is considered to bring peace of mind, relieve stress and promote self-confidence. In Persia, at the time of Alexander the Great, turquoise was used on engagement rings, since according to the tradition, it signified trustworthy relationships. Recently, turquoise has lost some of its value due to the imitations and the synthetically produced turquoise stones. A common turquoise imitation is dyed howlite and Magnesite.

All minerals used for the creation of our kombolois are mostly gemstones used to craft jewelry. Please treat your komboloi with care. Inclusions, cracks and breakage surfaces are a natural phenomenon and should never be associated with wear and tear.
