Information About Feroza JazakAllah! I also wanted to ask that can torn feroza stone be worn? Actually I got a stone from Iraq but when it was given to jeweler for fixation in a Gold Ring , he torn it a bit and apologized me.
I want to ask if the Holy Prophet (S. A. W. W) used to wear stones such as Feroza (turquoise) and Aqiq? If yes can I also wear both these simultaneously considering it a Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (S. A. W. W)
Information About Feroza, Is it true that only certain people can wear aqiq and feroza rings? Like the ring that’s most beneficial for a person to wear is determined based on his name and the position of the stars. So if a person is not fit to wear a certain ring like feroza and he wears it anyways, it can bring hardship and/or calamity upon him. My mother, who informed me about it, read this in a book written by a Shi’ah author (I don’t know if the author was a mollah or not).
Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrates sulphate
of copper and aluminum, with the chemical formula CuAl6(PO
2O. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. In recent times, turquoise has been devalued, like most other opaque gems, by the introduction onto the market of treatments, imitations, and synthetics.
The substance has been known by many names, but the word turquoise dates to the 17th century and is derived from the French turques for “Turks” because the mineral was first brought to Europe from Turkey, from mines in the historical province of Persia. Plin referred to the mineral as callais and the Aztecs knew it as chalchihuitl.
In the American southwest turquoise is almost invariably associated with the weathering products of copper sulfide deposits in or around potassium feldspar bearing porphyritic.
Initially at high temperature, these solutions rise upward to surface layers, interacting with, and leaching essential elements from pre-existing minerals in the process. As the solutions cool, turquoise precipitates, lining cavities and fractures within the surrounding rock. This hypogene process is applicable to the original copper sulfide deposition; however, it is difficult to account for the many features of turquoise occurrences by a hypogene process.
Turquoise was among the first gems to be mined, and many historic sites have been depleted, though some are still worked to this day. These are all small-scale operations, often seasonal owing to the limited scope and remoteness of the deposits. Most are worked by hand with little or no mechanization. However, turquoise is often recovered as a byproduct of large-scale copper mining operations, especially in the United States.
Information About FerozaThe color of Sinai material is typically greener than Iranian material, but is thought to be stable and fairly durable. Often referred to as Egyptian turquoise, Sinai material is typically the most translucent, and under magnification its surface structure is revealed to be peppered with dark blue discs not seen in material from other localities.
