of cool breezes blowing onshore from the North Atlantic
ocean. What is a cabochon stone?
A cabochon (/ˈkæbəˌʃɒn/, from Middle French caboche "head") is a
gemstone which has been shaped and polished as opposed to being
faceted. The resulting form is usually a convex (rounded) obverse
with a flat reverse. Cabochon was the default method of preparing
gemstones before gemstone cutting was developed and you'll find
cabochons throughout the collections.
Where do you find Sleeping Beauty Turquoise?
The Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine in Globe, Arizona was named
after the mountain range where it is located, which from a
distance is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms
crossed. It is often used by Zuni Pueblo silversmiths in petite
point, needlepoint, and inlay jewelry because of its natural
hardness and consistent color.
Sleeping Beauty herself would love these 2.5" long asymmetrical
earrings. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is popular as a gemstone of
dream and hope, and is believed to have power to improve
communication skills. Lapis is one of the most sought after
stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue
remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit
and vision. And White topaz symbolizes hope, love and happiness.
