Turquoise is a stunning stone with a fantastic history! It has adorned pharohs into the afterlife, decorated tribal chiefs, and been highly valued for thousands of years. It's bluish green color and history continue to make it quite a prize for modern societies as well.
We are proud to offer a beautiful lot of Natural Stabilized Chinese Turquoise at decent prices. All of the Turquoise we carry has been stabilized. This means it has been treated with a wetting agent while using heat and pressure to increase it's durability. The process does not affect the color quality. It is not dyed so it is still considered "natural." There are very few mines in the world that produce a Turquoise hard enough that it doesn't need to be stabilized to obtain a good polish. We are quite pleased with this bunch!
Turquoise Howlite has been included in this section because it is often mistaken for the real deal and is an affordable substitute.
