Turquoise is a soft, opaque gemstone. In the United states, it is most often found in the Southwest, and is commonly used in Native American jewelry. Because turquoise is so soft, it is often treated with chemical processes to make it harder, or otherwise "improve" it. Because of these practices, Jewelry that has not been treated, that is, natural turquoise jewelry - is more prized, and often more valuable.
The stores below carry a wide selection of natural turquoise. Some also carry the treated stones. It is wise to always ask through questions of the seller before buying any natural turquoise jewelry.
