Stabilizing turquoise?

I have about 100 lbs of turquoise most of it needs stabilized.I have tried the 1 oz of epoxy to 1 quart of acetone method and was not happy with the results it doesn't penetrate into the stone very far. I have heard that water glass works but I have no knowledge of the process.
