Sleeping Beauty turquoise was mined in Globe, Arizona. The mine produced an iconic turquoise that took the gemstone and fashion world by storm. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is notable for its rich and radiant blue. The mine was able to produce a high volume to meet market demands and became famous for a stone that was consistent in its wonderful tone. The mine, unfortunately, closed in 2012. The closure sent the prices skyrocketing. Grab your Sleeping Beauty turquoise before it is too late to find a great deal!

Turquoise is the December/Sagittarius birthstone. Both turquoise and turkey (that great holiday bird) are derived from the country that first introduced both to Europe, Turkey! However, Turquoise is found all over the world. It has been important to Native American heritage. Their intricate, hand made jewelry has extraordinary craftsmanship that often incorporates Turquoise. It can be found in varying colors of blue and green.
