    This paper is extracted from the manuscript of a forthcoming work in which the writer attempts to present the available information bearing on the history, ethnology, mythology, and folklore, as well as the mineralogy, geology, and technology of turquois. He realizes that many facts of interest have escaped him, and will be grateful for suggestions and data, not only relative to the subject of this paper, but to turquois in general.
