Sleeping Beauty


One of my favorite stones is Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.
The color is the prettiest shade of blue.
It reminds me of a clear, clean sky
or the clearest of oceans...
Do you know WHY they call it Sleeping Beauty?
It is mined only in Globe, AZ from the Sleeping Beauty Mine.
That mine looks like the outline of Sleeping Beauty.
I think it's crazy romantic.
Special stone.
Special mine.
