Sleeping Beauty Turquoise got its name because of its solid, light, sky blue color with no matrix with the host rock typically granite.

It's pure color and natural strength makes Sleeping Beauty Turquoise a favorite for jewelry makers and artists around the world.  It is one of the most prized forms of turquoise for jewelry and adornment and is often stable enough to be polished and used for turquoise jewelry without any treatment or stabilization.

The gemstone got its name from the mountain where it is mined, which resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed.
