For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the Great Spirit in the Sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken an injury for its wearer.
~1888’s Found Treasures~
In keeping with 1888’s company mission to educate and preserve vintage & antique historical works, we occasionally decide that some things are better left as they are!
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
