"Gaia is the name I call my Mother Earth. My love for her grows each day as I become more and more aware of her mind-boggling beauty. I wanted to design a piece that incorporated sterling silver and turquoise in an attempt to convey some of Gaia's different moods. In this necklace, the liquid, three-strand illusion of water is loose, playful, and an everyday piece that'll become your new symbol of confidence when you look in the mirror."
—Robert Lee Morris

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.

Keep your RLM Studio jewelry looking good as new with expert tips from designer Robert Lee Morris.
"All sterling silver tarnishes as it oxidizes from oxygen and moisture in the air, which turns the silver various shades of gray, brown, and even black. This is just a light surface coating of oxidation that can be removed by rubbing with a polishing cloth (a jeweler's rouge cloth works best). Keep sterling wrapped in scratch-free preventing cloth or tissue. Jewelry boxes with anti-tarnish felt are good, but you can also store sterling in the original box if your jewelry box is too full. Just make sure to mark what's inside the box to make it easy to find." - Robert Lee Morris
"Now that I've introduced tri-tone jewelry (copper, brass, and silver), you'll need an easy way to bring all three metal colors back to their original finish. Dip them into instant tarnish-remover liquid, available in many forms and names. It removes all tarnish immediately, but you must wash the jewelry in soap and water and dry thoroughly. The remover liquid is a harsh chemical, so please be careful and keep it tightly capped. Rubbing tri-color jewelry with a polishing cloth also works well." - Robert Lee Morris
