The famous Sleeping Beauty Turquoise was actually discovered by accident. The mine was opened to pull copper and gold and it wasn’t until relatively recently that the first turquoise stones were discovered. Even in rough form, the stones are vibrant and bright, even more blue than the bright Southwestern sky overhead. The stone got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed. Arizona has become one of the most important Turquoise mines in the world.
