  • Impregnated with colorless resin or plastic
  • Proprietary Zachery Method
  • Luster Enhancement

Why is the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise almost free of matrix or markings in the stone?
For Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, we closely monitor the range of blue color and the level of mottling, matrix and markings we will accept. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise can have all of these markings in the stone, but QVC currently accepts only Sleeping Beauty Turquoise that is free of markings.

What is matrix?
Turquoise deposits usually form in iron-rich host rock which tends to create dark brown or tan markings called matrix.

Where is Turquoise mined?
Turquoise is found in only a few places on earth: dry and barren regions where acidic, copper-rich groundwater seeps downward and reacts with minerals that contain phosphorus and aluminum. Some areas that most of the turquoise has been mined: Arizona, Mexico and China. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is from the Sleeping Beauty mine outside Globe, Arizona. The mine got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed.

How can we continue to sell Sleeping Beauty Turquoise if the mine is closed?
QVC suppliers have acquired large quantities of rough turquoise when they learned the mine was closing. We have been using these lots of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise for our jewelry.

The Sleeping Beauty mine is currently closed and, at this time, there is no new production of the Sleeping Beauty stones.

KaPOW Earrings! These earrings are bold, comfortable and great with everything. They are just as fine a quality as a certain expensive designer ... I looked at similar ones by this designer at a high end store. They sold for more than $1,000. The turquoise has just enough matrix to look "real" but are pure blue-green. Lovely. Wearable. 04-24-13
cheap looking very poor quality, cheap looking stones. way not worth the money. 09-22-12
Not worth the money Could not wait to receive these earrings. I love turquoise. However, these are cheap looking. The turquoise was very thin, the gold around the piece was not very substantial. They are light weight and easy to wear but being so light weight is what makes them look inexpensive. The price point on this piece should have been about $150. Half of what was charged. Have been really dissapointed in the quality of QVC jewelry lately. 08-28-12
Worth the Price Purchased these earrings in turquoise and they are beautiful. They are very light on the ears and hang just at the right length. My husband made a comment on how nice they looked. These are worth every penny and very well made. 08-25-12
