Turquoise Just like the deep blue sea: our gem of the month in July is turquoise. Characteristic Turquoise belongs to hydrated copper/aluminium phosphates. This very rare gemstone is only found in dry, “low mineral” areas and is described as “stable” with a porous surface. On the Mohs Scale of hardness it rates 5 to 6.
