Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes from a single mine near Globe, Arizona. It is prized for its perfections and lack of spiderweb veining. The mine is named after the mountain range where it is located, which from a distance is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms crossed. The mine closed in 2012 making Sleeping Beauty turquoise highly sought after by jewelry collectors.
