I buy beads whenever I find something I like and store them away. Sometimes I forget I have them. So recently I went through a box of beads and found these apple green chalk turquoise beads. I love the bright green color.
But what is Chalk Turquoise? Here is the definition from wisegeek.com
Simulated" turquoise is often touted as being chalk turquoise, when in fact it is just dyed Magnesite or another white stone that absorbs dye easily.
