As a novice collector, how can I tell the difference between turquoise and blue-green howlite?


Dear M,

Thank you for your inquiry. The first indication may be the price. Natural Turquoise is more expensive and not as readily available. Howlite can be more easily scratched, because it is softer than Turquoise. Most reputable companies will label the stone "Dyed Turquoise", "Turquoise Magnesite", or ""Turquoise Howlite".

At Healing Crystals we appreciate the opportunity to welcome you as a customer. We look forward to hearing from and please feel free to contact us with any questions.

I hope that these recommendations can be of assistance and that crystals grace your journey with love and light.

Crystal Blessings!
