The word turquoise came from Frenchmen who traded for the blue stones with Turks who procured the stones from Persia. It's not what the Persians called the stone, or what the Egyptians called it before them, but it's the name they all use now.

“[Turquoise] taken with…honey…has the power of curing epilepsy.” Apparently can cure snake bites when taken w/ wine, too. Gee, and I always just wore it.
