How to take care of your turquoise:
Turquoise is stable to light and most natural elements, but high heat can cause these stones to break and even become discolored. When not in use, be sure to store them in a cool dry place. To clean your turquoise be sure to only use warm, soapy water and never use steam or chemical cleaners.
