Most noteworthy, these are authentic Sleeping Beauty Turquoise nuggets on cards put together by the mine owners. In addition, these nuggets are direct from the miners upon the closing of the mine! We obtain these unique cards from the Sleeping Beauty mine owners at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. As a result, these are the last of the nugget cards available.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Headquarters in Globe, Arizona. – now “for rent” The signage is now painted over. We v isit this Sleeping Beauty Mine Headquarters, in Globe , Arizona, just two weeks before the mine closes. Sleeping Beauty turquoise, in the rough, skyrockets from $250.00 per pound to $2,500.00 per pound OVER NIGHT! The price per pound has now come back down. * Unlike most turquoise mines that “play out” and there is no further turquoise deposits available, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise doesn’t actually “play out. “ The fact is that the Canadian mining firm, Freeport McMoRan, buys out Phelps Dodge, and no longer offers turquoise mining contracts to turquoise recovery experts. Since the price of copper is high, it is no longer worth while to deal with EPA and OSHA for the royalty payments they would receive by a turquoise recovery firm. All the copper bearing material, including Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, now goes directly into the crusher!
Yes, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is still in existence, but is unattainable!
