What is Turquoise Magnesite?
Magnesite is a natural white/cream toned gemstone, that is dyed with copper to create the wonderful blue/green colour of turquoise. In fact, dying the stones in this way is recreating the natural process in which Turquoise gets its colour in the ground…so it’s as close to natural Turquoise as you could get without paying 100s of dollars a strand! Turquoise Magnesite is heavy like natural Turquoise, and is a beautiful alternative to genuine Turquoise. It is also a vast improvement on previous versions of ‘synthetic’ turquoise, which were heavily resin based and quite light and unnatural looking.
