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.
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.
