Description

  • Approximate beads per strand: 100
  • What is it: Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine is located in Globe, Arizona in America. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is known for its beautiful deep blue color and produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
  • History: The Navajo tool, called a Hohokam hammer, (dating back to 600 a.d.) were used for mining, polishing and finishing the turquoise. Using the hammers and other primative tools, the Native Americans would cut the turquoise from the rock. The hammers are on display at the Mohave Museum of History and Arts and the Arizona State Museum in Phoenix.
  • Metaphysical Properties: It is believed that Turquoise improves the mental state overall by increasing all of the following positive mental characteristics: serenity, creativity, empathy, positive thinking, sensitivity, intuition, happiness wisdom all of which leads to greater self-realization.
  • Stablized Turquoise: Natural, Mined Turquoise in it's raw form is very soft and is much like "sidewalk chalk." Since it is not hard enough for jewelry making purposes, it is stablized. The stabilization process is done with a clear resin to make the stone harder and to achieve a glossy shine, but not to change the color or composition of the stone in any way. These are not dyed, tinted, or color enhanced in any way. They will never fade, bleed, or change in color. 
  • Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead
