💎 SLEEPING BEAUTY TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona has become one of the most important Turquoise mines in the world. The Mine was originally first found by the Native Americans during the Anasazi times, where the Turquoise was mined with hand tools and little bits were collected at a time. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is famous for it's baby blue or "Robin's Egg" blue colour, and it's name comes from the mountain where it is mined, which resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed.
