The answer is no, there is no easy way to identify any gem material.
If it would be, gemologists would be out of business. Turquoise is
especially difficult, because it exist in many different forms and
qualities. If you follow to my website, I have wrote sometime ago an
introduction to turquoise. I doubt it will make things easier, but
maybe more understandable.
