Diamonds have also been referred to as the "king of gems", being the hardest known natural substance as well as its superior light reflective abilities.
TURQUOISE got its name from early trade routes - Europeans ended up getting the stone from the Turkish bazaars. Turquoise has been a prominent stone throughout most cultures for thousands of years. It is seen as a symbol of wisdom and nobility.
SLEEPING BEAUTY: Sleeping Beauty turquoise is known for its sky blue coloring with only moderate black veining up to no veining at all in finer specimens.It used to be found in a mine in Arizona that was called “sleeping beauty”, because the mine’s formation looked like a woman lying on her back with her arms crossed.It is the only mine that produces Sleeping Beauty turquoise, so natural turquoise of this form is very limited.It is still being mined today. Ninety percent of all Sleeping Beauty turquoise is stabilized due to the stone's soft nature.
