This necklace is mini but mighty! This small piece of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is packed with natural pyrite inclusions and has the prettiest, natural sparkle. The stone is nestled in fine silver and hangs from a dainty, 18" sterling silver chain.
Sleeping Beauty: This Turquoise deposit was first discovered by the Anasazi who lived between 100 and 1600 ad, and then rediscovered in the early 1900's. Sleeping Beauty is one of the most famous Turquoise mines in the world and is often the color and type of turquoise you think of in traditional jewelry. It is known for its light blue coloring and often has no webbing or matrix.
As with all handmade jewelry, these pieces are delicate and require special care.
