Turquoise (imitation)

Genuine turquoise is becoming harder and harder to find.  Hence, many "turquoise" on the market today is made from reconstituted turquoise chips and/or powder.  Imitation turquoise is usually magnesite or a similar stone that is naturally white or cream, has straitions similar to those found in turquoise, and is dyed "turquoise blue".
