Although we use a fair amount of natural (untreated) gemstones, we believe in utilizing up-cycled resources where possible. So we do use some reconstituted stones. If such stones are used, they are identified in the description. Interestingly, when most of the retrieved resources (chips resulting from cutting rare or softer stones) are treated they usually become more attractive & stable than the original stone. In some cases, the natural stone, such as Turquoise, is becoming harder to find as several mines have closed and it is more expensive each year. When you find "Turquoise" in craft stores and it is labeled Turquoise, it is likely dyed Howlite or a "look alike" stone dyed. By law, the labels are suppose indicate what the material really is. "Chalk" Turquoise is simply "dust" that is saved from cutting or drilling it. (It is typically white and dyed Turquoise) Even treated Turquoise is expensive.
