Sleeping Beauty turquoise is one of the most recognizable types of turquoise in the world. Located in Globe, Arizona, the Sleeping Beauty mine was one of the most well known producers of turquoise in the world!

The mine is named after the mountain range where it is located, which is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms crossed from a distance.

The Mayas, $400,

This turquoise has a rich, sky blue color and it lacks a heavy matrix. Some say it resembles a Robin’s egg.
