    Hope you're not taking my playing along with the original joke as mineralogical truth! Matrix, yes; newt, no.

    materials have been added to give the "matrix" a metallic flash

    Nor I. Have certainly heard of turquoise being 'stabilized'. My guess is that yours is not 'enhanced'. This cameo is similar material.
