Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, its unique shade of blue, often blue-green is healing to the eye. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is from a particular mine in Arizona. The stone gets its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is revered and highly sought after due to its pure sky blue color which shows very little to no veining or webbing.
