What is compressed turquoise?

I noticed on the description of item 367-478 that it mentions the turquoise pendant is compressed stablized turquoise. I am unfamiliar with how compressed turquoise is made. Anyone out there know?
Thanks...

RE: What is compressed turquoise?

I did some further reseach on the internet and came up with this information regarding compressed turquoise.

The term reconstituted describes ground up turquoise scrap mixed with blue dye and plastic binder. Many products that are reconsituted should really be labeled as simulated “block”. Compressed Nugget is a similar product made from larger pieces.

How true this is I don't know but that's about all that I could find.
