Glamorous Vintage Native American Navajo Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Silver Necklace
The Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine holds a special place in the world of turquoise mining. Located in Globe, Arizona, this mine is renowned for its distinct and highly coveted Sleeping Beauty turquoise. Named after the nearby Sleeping Beauty Mountain, this mine has a rich history dating back to ancient times when Native American tribes revered the area for its abundance of this beautiful gemstone. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is known for its striking sky-blue color, often devoid of any matrix, giving it a clean and vibrant appearance. The gemstone's uniformity and intense hue make it a favorite among jewelry designers and collectors worldwide. The Sleeping Beauty mine gained prominence in the mid-20th century and became an important source of this prized turquoise. However, the mine ceased production in 2012, making Sleeping Beauty turquoise even more cherished and valuable. Despite its closure, the Sleeping Beauty mine remains an iconic symbol of the beauty and allure of turquoise, and its gemstones continue to captivate with their timeless elegance. Sterling silver. The length of the necklace measures around 22". Sturdy 19 grams.
