Sleeping Beauty Turquoise

What is sleeping beauty turquoise?

Turquoise ranges from a sky blue to a blue-green color. Turquoise is mined in the southwest United States, and Arizona is the leading producer of excellent quality turquoise. Sleeping beauty turquoise is only mined at the Sleeping Beauty mine in Globe, Arizona. Since the mine is now closed, the value of natural sleeping beauty turquoise has risen. Sleeping beauty turquoise is known for it's pure sky blue color, without veins or webs, which occurs in most turquoise. Turquoise is the birthstone for December, along with zircon, tanzanite, and blue topaz, and it has a hardness of 5-6 on the Mohs scale.
