You may be interested in the following information regarding turquoise:
The chemical term used for a Turquoise gemstone is hydrated copper aluminum phosphate. It is a hydrated phosphate mineral and is used to make cabochons, beads and carvings. Turquoise is somewhat a soft material (5-6 Mohs hardness) and is vulnerable to scratching.
But despite its relative softness it is used for jewelry making like earrings, rings, bracelets, pendants, beaded jewelry.
Natural turquoise is porous and can absorb body oil when worn next to the skin, and this sometimes can cause a change in color from blue to green. Be sure to keep perfume, hairspray, sunscreen, and other cosmetics from coming in contacting with this stone since this may change the color. Apply hairspray, perfume, etc. before putting on your turquoise stone.
Turquoise should be stored separately from harder gemstones which can scratch it. Place in a plastic bag or small gift box and place in your jewelry box.
Do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner on turquoise or abrasive chemical cleaners. Do not dip in silver dipping solutions. Do not soak in water. It is safest to clean turquoise using a damp soft cloth with a little mild soap (Ivory soap is good because it doesn't have any heavy perfumes or oils).
You can use a silver polishing cloth to clean any sterling silver metal that the stone is set in. (polishing clothes can be found at local jewelry stores).
