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.
Red Lip Shell or luanos shell is a cream and pink salmon color and is occurs naturally.
Howlite is a borate mineral found in evaporite deposits. Most common forms are the irregular nodules which resemble cauliflower. Crystals of Howlite are rare, and have only been found in a couple of sites in the world.
