What does stabilization mean? About 95% of all turquoise on the market today is stabilized. It is a necessary process in order to maintain the beautiful color of the turquoise and harden the stone. Turquoise absorbs oils from the skin while it's worn and contact with natural elements will cause turquoise to lose it's color over time. Once stabilized, the color is permanent. Stabilizing also hardens the stone so it can easily be drilled.
