Original Message:   Turquoise help request
I found Danny's recent post of his gorgeous turquoise beads very interesting, and then the discussion about the high prices being realized for turquoise VERY interesting.

So I dug out some of my turquoise stash and having no experience identifying it, let alone pricing it, I was hoping I could impose on the turquoise experts for some help.

First set of pictures is of a strand of graduated disks, augmented by a few rounds. Largest disk in the center is about 17 mm diameter. Purchased about 12-15 years ago, and I guess it is Chinese turquoise. Is there any way to tell from pictures if it is stabilized, dyed, etc. and what the value would be today? I have not shopped for turquoise for over 10 years so I don't know if strand like this are available. I recall paying maybe $80-100 for it.
