Natural turquoise - sleeping beauty Arizona
Our silver jewelry with turquoise is made only with natural Sleeping Beauty Blue Turquoise from Arizona. It is characterized by a beautiful blue uniform color and is considered one of the best and most valuable turquoise in the world. We source high-quality turquoise certified by the Gemmology Institute in Lyon and the Laboratory in Monaco. However, because the mines of this turquoise were closed in 2012, the prices of turquoise from old stocks are constantly increasing. The vast majority of cheap “turquoise” sold in Europe is not natural - instead it uses synthetic stones, dyed, pressed, or similar.
It is a mineral from the phosphate group made up of water, oxide of aluminum, copper, and phosphorus. Its name originates from Turkey, “the Turkish stone”, because its main trade route passed through Turkey. Turquoise is a fragile mineral, therefore Artipol selects only natural stones which are resistant to long term abrasion. Turquoise is also sensitive to chemical shocks, therefore natural cabochons are often stabilized which protects the Turquoise from harmful effects.
All Artipol Turquoise jewellery designs are set in rhodium-plated silver. We offer Blue Turquoise silver rings, Blue Turquoise silver bracelets, Blue Turquoise silver pendants, as well as, Blue Turquoise silver earrings. The Turquoise selected by Artipol originates from deposits of the United States of America
