These are old stock, natural turquoise gemstone beads. They are polished into nuggets. The natural turquoise has some color variations between blue and green that are expected with natural turquoise. There is quite a bit of matrix running throughout the turquoise. The beads are very nicely polished into free form nuggets that vary in size and shape. This is not dyed and it is not Howlite, but I don't know if they have been treated. It is old stock turquoise I acquired from a bead collector.
