The Faravahar

The Farvahar/farvahar (Persian: فروهر), also known as the foruhar/faravahar is one of the best-known symbols of Zoroastrianism, an Iranian religion. It symbolizes Zoroastrianism, the main religion of pre-Islamic Persia, and Iranian nationalism.

The Faravahar is the most worn pendant among Iranians and has become a secular national symbol, rather than a religious symbol. It symbolizes good thoughts (پندار نیک pendār-e nik), good words (گفتار نیک goftār-e Nik), and good deeds (کردار نیک kerdār-e Nik), which are the basic tenets and principles of Zoroastrianism.

Persian Turquoise

For at least 2,000 years, the region once known as Persia has remained the most important source of turquoise. Its sky-blue turquoise has always been a magnet for beauty seekers throughout history.

Turquoise is a non-vitreous stone, which differs in shade from blue, green, and blue-green depending on its origin.
