Vibrant and completely natural sky blue! Rare south western USA turquoise sourced from the now closed Sleepy Beauty mine in Arizona. Set in a sterling silver Celtic Knot design wrap style band, with decorative flourish. Gemstone measures roughly 10x8mm. Comes in a Two Skies presentation box.
The clever design of the band means that this ring can be set to span ring sizes N-P (UK) or 6¾-7¾ (US). As setting adjustable rings can sometimes be a delicate procedure, we are happy to set the size for you before we sent it out to you - just let us know in the 'free gift card message' field.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Silver Celtic Ring
Turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona has a pure sky blue colour with generally very little veining or webbing. The mine closed in 2014, making the material in circulation even more precious.
The name was coined from Turkey, where the first "Persian Stones" were mined. Now sourced from Asia and the United States, the most prized colours are the "dark greens" of Tibetan/Asian stones and the "sky blues" such as those sourced from Sleeping Beauty Mine, Arizona. Used by the Native American Navajo during vision quests, it is a stone of guidance and protection.
