What about all the inexpensive jewelry out there, on the market, that claims it is made with turquoise? Sorry to burst your bubble, but most of those stones are not turquoise at all. They are usually magnesite and howlite dyed in turquoise color. The rest of the cheap stones are imported, inferior quality turquoise. So, how do you know what to choose? Glad you asked, because I'm about to give you a little lesson here.
