Simulated vs Real Turquoise Stone
Simulated turquoise stone (or “fake turquoise”) is most commonly created with the soft mineral howlite. Howlite is dyed to resemble turquoise.
Other similar turquoise substitutes include the mineral magnesite as well as epoxy, resins and even simple composite plastics.
In terms of value, genuine turquoise is considered more valuable and sought after, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some stunning simulated alternatives.
