"CHALK" TURQUOISE: is a term used to describe a lower grade Turquoise that has been dyed and stabilized with hardeners to produce a material that's durable enough to use in jewelry with a pleasing turquoise color. It has the same phosphate composition as Turquoise, only with lower amounts of copper, aluminum and/or iron. It's the metal content that results in the green to blue turquoise color. More recently, the name "Chalk Turquoise" is being applied to Reconstituted Turquoise or dyed Magnesite (MgCO3). Chalk Turquoise has become a popular substitute for high-grade Turquoise that is becoming increasingly more expensive and rare. It can now be found in a variety of new and contemporary colors such as lime green, bright yellow, pink and lavender.
Turquoise is thought to attract prosperity and success, influence creativity, and enhance communication skills. The stone has long been prized as a powerful talisman with healing properties. It is said that Turquoise can help balance the throat chakra, bolster the immune system and give relief to sore throats, lung infections and allergies.
