What is stabilized turquoise stones or beads?


I am wondering about stones and beads being sold as "stabilized" turquoise (or even other stones that are stabilized). We see more and more synthetic stones being sold and made into jewelry, etc. I know some are heat treated, some are synthetic, some are dyed, etc. For people wanting authentic stones, are the "stabilized" ones authentic or fake?
