Elevate your style with this exquisite necklace from Zuni Pueblo, featuring a magnificent butterfly pendant adorned with spiny oyster, jet, dolomite, and Sleeping Beauty turquoise. The spiny oyster stones, with their warm shades of red and orange evoke a sense of energy and vitality. The jet stones, known for their deep black hue, provide a striking contrast to pale dolomite and emphasize the intricate details of the butterfly pendant. The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stones, renowned for their vibrant blue color, add a touch of serene beauty and harmony.


A four-strand Sleeping Beauty turquoise nugget chain adds additional depth to this necklace. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is famous for its iconic pure blue color. One of the most sought-after gemstones, the Sleeping Beauty mine closed permanently in 2012 causing its value to triple over the past decade.


Coveted for its pristine sky-blue shade devoid of veining or web patterns, Sleeping Beauty turquoise holds a cherished place in the realm of sought-after gemstones. Its historical significance has left an indelible mark on the turquoise narrative, especially since the closure of the Arizona Turquoise Mine in 2012. The mine closure, coupled with the gem's innate allure, has led to a surge in its value. With its pure hue and inherent durability, Sleeping Beauty turquoise stands as a beloved choice among global jewelry artisans and creatives.
