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.

Artisan Crafted Sterling TelkariFiligree and Turquoise Cross Pendant 4.9 5 13 13
SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL THIS CROSS IS BETTER THAN I EXPECTED IT TO BE. I HAD BEEN EYEING IT FOR A WHILE AND WHEN IT BECAME A LTS FOR 19 PLUS DOLLARS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I JUMPED ON IT. I AM SO PLEASED WITH IT I CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR IT. 01-13-14
Lovely. This cross is very intricate and lovely. What a good value for the money. I bought one extra for gifting. 12-30-13
WHAT A BEAUTY!!! This filigree is LARGE! It is NOT gaudy or cumbersome. Please know that the sizing they give is ACCURATE, and gauge from there. The sterling silver filigree is sharply cut and designed...not the least bit fuzzy. My turquoise is clear blue/green, and complimentary to the silver. The cross itself is THIN. But, NOT aluminum foil thin. Sturdy, but not bullet proof. It truly is, a beauty. 12-27-13
Good Value This pendant was surprisingly large and showy for very little money. This one will be going into my gift assortment if I don't decide to keep it for myself. 12-16-13
Beautiful Cross The workmanship, beauty, and value of this cross are extrodinary! I collect crosses, but hesitated because of the size of the cross and me being a small person: I had to try based on video, and reviews. I think it looks great and expresses my faith without being "too much." Thank you to the artisans, and QVC for making it possible for all of us to have such pieces. 08-25-13
Beautiful..but This is a lovely piece. The scroll work is perfect. It is large but because of the open work It doesn't look overpowering. I love it except the turquoise colored stone just doesn't look good, it looks like plastic and, to me just detracts from the look. I tried to wear it with the stone facing me, better but it doesn't look as nice, so I am sending it back. 08-06-13
Stunning Even after reading the reviews, I was amazed by the beauty of this cross. Pictures do not do it justice. The size is perfect, large but not overwhelming. The turquoise is a lovely blue-green. And the detail in the silver work is absolutely beautiful. This is a well-made, quality piece of jewelry that I will be very proud to wear. 07-17-13
Majestic Superb! Spectacular! Stunning! Splendid! Not to mention, looks striking worn on the filigree, reverse side. Finished nicely. 12-19-12
Beautiful cross I'm happy with this cross. The price is unbelievable for a piece like this. Sterling silver jewelry has become a luxury due to the high price of silver. In addition to that, the hand work is beautiful. I was in Turkey about 6 years ago I could not find jewelry like this for the price. 09-20-12
Love it Beautiful cross, nice size, substantial weight but not heavy. I really love it. 08-30-12
SPECTACULAR PIECE!! This cross is beautiful. The price in unbelievable, especially when you consider what silver is going for these days! The turquoise is a greenish blue without matrix. It is a good sized cross. You cannot beat it for looks and price. I highly recommend it for your personal collection or as a gift. 07-16-12
Lacy and Elegant I am loving the Telkari Turkish pieces! This cross is a nice weight and thickness without being cumbersome -- and a great, bold size! The swirling filigree work is so intricate -- there is no doubt that it takes a skilled artisan to create this. If you look closely, the arms of the cross are composed of lacy silver hearts. The smooth, greenish turquoise cabochon is the perfect pop of color in the center. This cross also feels wonderful to the touch, and I find myself absentmindedly picking it up and holding it from time to time when I'm wearing it. It looks great on a shorter leather cord, close to the neck, or worn longer on a silver chain. I'll definitely be watching for more Telkari pieces! 10-23-11
