    One source said: Treated turquoise is best recognized by its transparent plastic appearance. It looks unnatural because it looks too blue and too highly polished.

    So since these don’t look like that I think they may be either stabilized our natural.
    Either way…Another Gorgeous pick! :)

    I’ve learned that unless otherwise stated as natural, most turquoise is dyed or stabilized. The real thing is VERY hard to come by these days.

    Frida, this pick is so beautiful! Love the softness of it. And yet it has an earhty touch. Love it!

    Thank you for your inputs, glad u like the pick!

    I’m a sucker for “natural gems”, sure colorenhanced gems and such stuff can make beautiful beads, but I don’t treasure them as the real stuff.

    I bought from another place turq. that look almost like these and they claimed them to be real. However the more one learn about gems the more complex the industry seems…

    I love the color of these eaven if they might not be real turq.!

    Lima staff do you know if there are any treatment to these?

    Love the pick Frida, as to the turquoise maybe LB will help us out, but then looking at the price I’m thinking that it’s dyed :D
