Sleeping Beauty Turquoise
- I personally purchased these Sleeping Beauty cards at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show during the last display of Sleeping Beauty turquoise by the mine owners when the mine was being shut down.
- These carded samples were bought directly from the miners who assembled these cards.
- It was told to me by the miners of Sleeping Beauty that the black replaced the natural white matrix by tumbling the turquoise in a cement tumbler, at the mine, with black medium.
- Great obsolete souvenir from the original Sleeping Beauty mine.
