The Manufacture of American Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona

Our American  Sleeping Beauty Turquoise was mined from the mines in Arizona’s Gila County in the USA, which is a definite factor in its valuation. While we may have heard of the origination of turquoise to be from the country of Turkey (thus the name) and neighboring Iran, American mines have upped them in volume and quality. The Arizona Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is known to possess a very consistent color and very clean appearance, naturally. Navneet Gems is an American Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Manufacturer and top Turquoise Cabochons Manufacturer.

The Manufacture of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona.

The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine is seven miles outside of Globe Arizona and in its hey-day was a very prolific mine producing over 800 Kilograms a month. Now that mine is depleted but we have your supply here in Bangkok. We did what many others did and bought up a good amount of stock before the prices rose dramatically and the mine there was closed. We can also provide virtually any cut and shapes such as in Oval Pear, Rounds, Cushions, Squares, Heart shaped or Marquis and do special orders if you wish. Just let us know and our expert cutters will do what they do best for you. We have factories in Jaipur, India, in Chantaburi, Thailand and also in our here in Bangkok, Thailand.

We can supply to you a consistent quality of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and a somewhat consistent shade, It is a trait of all Turquoise that a consistent shade of say Blue-Blue or Green-Green Turquoise is nearly impossible but instead an overlapping Green-Blue or Blue Green Turquoise is what is available. As a cutter of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, we can small sizes from 1mm to 10 mm and in all shapes. For color and pricing you can see that in this photo, the first 2 rows are called Greenish-Blue color because they are Blue mostly with some Green color in them. The last row is Blue-Green with the dominant color being Green. The stones are always in production but if you need mostly a blue color of say Cabochons for example, please tell us. There may be price differences if you choose one or the other, or if you need a mix as in the photo.

Where Is Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from?

Arizona Turquoise mines were the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise mine and the Copper Queen Mine in Bisbee Arizona and the Morenci Mine in Greenlee County Arizona which now is the only one open and it is one of the largest copper mine reserves in the U.S. and Turquoise is actually a bi-product of copper mining. The story goes that from many years ago because Turquoise was not as popular and the mines were copper mines, the miners would carry the turquoise out in their lunch boxes and sell to a local collector there near the Sleeping Beauty Mine. We do have our contacts there in Arizona and this is how we were able to acquire our stock of this beautiful Turquoise gemstone.

Who buys Sleeping Beauty Turquoise?

The Americans are the biggest consumers and love their Turquoise patriotically and especially in the Southwest United States (California to Texas). Also, Native Americans have used Turquoise in jewelry there for hundreds if not thousands of years. Much has been shipped to Europe and the Italian Jewelry and Gemstone Market fell in love with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Much was shipped to Italy in fact and there is still a huge demand for it there and around the world.  

 What is the Benefit of Turquoise and Turquoise Meaning and Uses?

Turquoise is used as a healing stone and is seen as being among the Master Stones. It is said to benefit the whole body and has special strengths in healing many ailments. For centuries, it has been used for healing in many cultures and for protection from evil in countries like Iran and Turkey. If the Empress in fact wears the Turquoise Tiara often enough, she may feel protected from the evil witch (in the Sleeping Beauty movie). All joking aside and with respect to all of our beloved ancestors and present day healers, there certainly is a loving feeling for Turquoise around the world.
