Turquoise Colors

There are several varieties of turquoise to choose from

A mix of blue and green, turquoise has a sweet, pleasant feel while darker teal shades add lively sophistication.

Turquoise has connotations of healing and protection, and evokes images of the ocean. Its calming properties are why the color turquoise is often used to decorate medical facilities, particularly those that treat patients with mental illnesses.

The name for the color turquoise comes from the gemstone of the same hue. It gets its name from Turkey, the country that first exported it to Europe. In ancient times, turquoise was a mineral that was highly valued for its remarkable color. It's still used in jewelry, often paired with silver for a striking look.
