Turquoise has been mined on six continents and traded by cultures throughout the world's history, including the European, Chinese, Mayan, Aztec, Inca, and Southwest Native American. It has been set in silver and gold jewelry, cut and shaped into fetish animals, and even formed to represent gods in many religions. Turquoise represents the arts and traditions of prehistoric, historic, and modern societies and includes examples from the greatest collections in the world.
