Day 137 — Turquoise — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty is found in a turquoise necklace my mother made for me. I love the aqua colored stone with it’s unique patterning although pure blue stones have a higher value. It amazes me that this pretty stone is a mineral made from hydrated phosphorus and copper. It is also on of the oldest stone’s in man;s history. Anyway, the blue green stones are very smooth to the touch and the color is soothing.
