Turquoise Tunnels

$ 19.00

Pair
Turquoise can range from green to blue and is veined with black or brown oxides. It is a relatively soft and porous gemstone so it should be cleaned only with water and can scratch easily. These plugs are stabilized turquoise, which means the natural turquoise stone has been treated through pressure impregnation with sodium silicate. The "stabilization" ensures the color will not fade as untreated turquoise does. It also hardens the turquoise to improve durability and resist scratches. Stabilized turquoise is not fake turquoise! It is a treatment on the stone that allows it to retain its natural beauty for years to come!
