Turquoise – is a blue-to-green mineral that is made of a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum. It’s rare and often very expensive and priced that way too. Because of its unique hue it is treated like most gemstones and has been devalued over the years by being imitated, synthesized and with the use of other types of treatments.
The most common imitations of turquoise are dyed Howlite and Magnesite. Both naturally white and having a convincing black vein that turquoise has, that when dyed helps to make it look like turquoise.
Magnesite is mineral that can be colorless, white, pale brown, barely pink, lilac-rose and pale yellow. It can exhibit a pale green to pale blue fluorescence under certain lights. It is dyed to make beads and ornaments.
Pinctada or Golden Lip Shell is a genus of saltwater clams, marine bivalve mollusks in the family Pteriidae, and the pearl oysters. These oysters have a strong inner shell layer composed of nacre, also known as “mother of pearl”.
