About reconstituted and stabilized turquoise:
Because most natural turquoise stone are chalk like and very easy to break, vast majority turquoise on the market are not 100% natural. They are either stabilized or reconstituted.
Reconstituted turquoise beads are made from natural turquoise stones that are crushed to powder and reconstituted (with polymer glue) to beads.
Natural, mined turquoise nuggets are heated at a very low temperature for about a week, slowly drawing out moisture without damaging the texture. The stones are then placed into acrylic or polymer chemicals to replace water molecules. This stabilizes the stone and keeps its beauty and value intact.
