Turquoise Around The World

The turquoise dolphin waters at Xel Ha, Cancun

I just love the color turquoise which is a combination of green and blue and takes its name from the turquoise gem. I don’t have a favorite color but this one is definitely a contender.

I love that peaceful characteristic that comes from green and blue and together become a bright and cheerful color. I have captured the color turquoise around the world from Mexican waters to Indian walls but none in Turkey which is where the color name comes from as the gem was originally imported from Turkey, and turquoise is French for Turkish.
