What do you mean by "hinky"? No I think it's one of the most beautifull stones in creation.

I just picked up a piece, that needs to be stabilized and don't really like it. It crumbles, pretty sure I paid way to much for the material. This is my first piece and haven't cut any yet. I really wouldn't have a clue what good turquois looks like.
