And if so. What is the longevity of it? Isn't turquoise a little brittle?
Yes it is real. Turguoise is hard a lot harder than plastic, clay, or shell.

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium, with the chemical formula CuAl6(PO4)4(OH)8·4H2O. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gemstone for millennia due to its hue.

Turquoise ranks 5 to 6 on the Mohs scale and its toughness is generally Fair to Good. Mother of Pearl or Shell is a 3.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness.

Good to know. My wife had a turquoise ring once. And it cracked on one of the veins. That's why I asked. :toast
