Reconstituted turquoise heishi does contain real turquoise, but also contains resins and dyes. Some versions have additions like pyrite, which help to make the turquoise stones and beads that are reconstituted look more real. To the naked eye, reconstituted turquoise heishi has all the appeal of standard turquoise, without the price! While it is attractive, it should be clearly labeled as reconstituted so that buyers know what they’re getting.
