Caring For Turquoise:

Turquoise is generally stable to light, but high heat can cause discoloration and surface damage. It dissolves slowly in hydrochloric acid, and it can be discolored by chemicals, cosmetics, and even skin oils or perspiration.

It’s safe to clean Turquoise jewelry with warm, soapy water, but it should never be cleaned with steam or ultrasonic cleaners. Some Turquoise is treated to improve its surface appearance. Heat or solvents can damage the treated surfaces.
