In Iran, turquoise is traditionally categorized into three main types. Angoshtri refers to the finest ring stones, Barkhane denotes medium quality, and Arabic encompasses stones that are pale, green, or have spots of matrix. This classification system underscores the varied nature and applications of Iranian turquoise in jewelry making.

Iranian turquoise has long been a symbol of prestige and luxury. In the 17th century, it was a mark of sophistication and elegance for English gentlemen to wear turquoise jewelry. Even Napoleon I favored this gemstone, replacing the emeralds in Marie-Louise’s crown with Iranian turquoise cabochons, signifying its esteemed status.

The market value of Iranian turquoise is a reflection of its exceptional quality and rarity. In the 1970s, a piece of high-quality turquoise measuring 15x20mm could command prices as high as $2,000, a testament to its enduring appeal and desirability among collectors and connoisseurs
