NOTE: The Sleeping Beauty Mine near Globe, AZ is 90% reclaimed. In the next two weeks, it will be covered with thousands of tons of dirt and rocks, as it all comes to an end. No more Sleeping Beauty will ever be removed from the mine. One pound of assorted nuggets and rough, as seen. First picture is wet, second is dry. The items you will receive will appear as in the dry pictures. Natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise is naturally coated with an oxidized white powder unitl it is cleaned, polished or stabilized. This is one way to tell the real stuff material from the fake turquoise that is often colored from China, appearing almost as dark as azurite. Some experienced buyers may want to stabilize the lot to achieve the same results, resulting in deeper natural colors and additional hardness. What you see is what you get, so the pictures are the best bet. Shot with 100% daylight and edited on an Adobe professional, color corrected monitor. Please study pictures and note description. We do our best to describe items but we are not geology experts. Items will be group packed in bubble wrap to protect. Some flaking or breakage is possible during transport since the matrix and possible weaknesses (fractures) are impossible to predict. We will not sell anything separately.
