Care: Turquoise stones can range in color from bright blue to green. Though turquoise is a porous stone, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, cosmetics and heat can cause the color of a Turquoise gemstone to change. This can be avoided with care and attention by cleaning your gemstone with a soft cloth and water.
