The Story of One Paisa
The Indian One Paisa coin (Hindi: पैसा), was a unit of currency equaling 1⁄100 (one-hundredth) of the Indian rupee. The symbol for paisa is p. These coins were introduced on 1 April 1957 and withdrawn from circulation and demonetised on 30 June 2011.
The most legendary of all the stones, the Turquoise crystal has reached rock star status in the world of healing minerals. Its dazzling blue-green shade made an appearance in ancient Egypt around 6000 BCE where it was incorporated into protective amulets and royal bling for the likes of King Tut and Cleopatra.
Turquoise is also the traditional birthstone of December babies!
