About Sleeping Beauty Turquoise:

The name sleeping beauty came from the mountain where the turquoise was mined. The mountain resembles a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed. The stone’s color is a vivid robin egg blue with little to no matrix or veining. These beautiful stones were discovered by accident while miners were pulling copper and gold from the mountain. Sleeping beauty turquoise is one of the most treasured turquoise stones in the world. 

The Sleeping Beauty Mine stopped producing turquoise in 2012. Since the closure of the mine, the value of this beautiful gemstone continues to rise as supplies become harder to find. Often you will hear sleeping beauty turquoise being called a true gem of the Southwest.

 

Gemstone Treatment:

Sleeping beauty turquoise gemstones go through a process of stabilization to harden the gemstone and stabilize the color to prevent fading over time. Turquoise is a very porous material rating 5-6 on the Mohs hardness scale and it's color can be altered by elements in the environment. Stabilizing the turquoise ensures hardness and color quality.
