ESTATE ANTIQUE 14K YELLOW GOLD GENUINE NATURAL TURQUOISE CHARM SLEEPING BEAUTY TURQUOISE 3-D. From it’s humble begginings Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona has become one of the most important Turquoise mines in the world. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise was first found by the Native Americans during the Anasazi times. At this time the Turquoise was mined with hand tools and little bits were collected at a time. The baby blue or “Robin’s Egg” blue Turquoise was mainly used as beads and on shells that the Native American tribes of the Southwest had traded for with the Native American tribes of central and south America. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise also made its way to Pueblo Bonito during the Anasazi times along with Turquoise from other deposits in the Southwest. Pueblo Bonito served as a trade center for Anasazi Turquoise for North American Tribes, Central American Tribes and South American tribes. Since this time, the Sleeping Beauty mine was developed by Anglo peoples in search of Copper and other meetal ore. The Turquoise was under contract by Monty Nichols. Nichols is said to have “Torn down a mountain” to find the famous Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, which is a figure of speech, not an actuality to show how much work the miner has done to get the stone that has become an icon in the gem industry.
