Turquoise.

Turquoise was generally found in the more arid locations around Toril.[4]

DescriptionEdit

This ornamental stone was an opaque blue to greenish-blue, and usually occurred with blotches of darker hues in the mix.[4][5] A typical stone had a base value of 10 gp.[1][2][3]

Turquoise stones were considered sacred by followers of Aerdrie Faenya and Erevan Ilesere—appropriate for sacrifice, or to be consecrated for use, or recognized as boons or omens when found.[6]

PowersEdit

Elves valued the pure color stones (without the darker mottling)[4][5] for casting sky-related magic and mages used turquoise in the creation of items related to flight.[5][7] It was also used as a good luck charm by horsemen who would put a small shard of turquoise in their horse's harness[4] to ward off misstep or trail hazards.[5] Turquoise had a slight gleam when it came near gold and was therefore associated with prosperity. Foredawn[note 1] was the best time of day to apply an immersion containing turquoise.[5]
