Later, coins and Spanish trouser and jacket ornaments were domed to create beads to display along side their treasured Squash Blossom. Today, Squash Blossoms are found in many different forms. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is mined in Globe, Arizona. Originally, the mine was producing Copper and Gold, however, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise has been mined there since. Today, Nevada is the country's major producer of Turquoise, with more than 120 mines which have yielded significant quantities of turquoise. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is known for how few inclusion's it has. The stone has a "pure" color. The color of Turquoise is determined by how much of one mineral oxidizes in the stone compared to the other. The more iron, the bluer the Turquoise, and the more copper the stone contains, the greener the appearance. Legend has it that the natives danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become the Sky Stone. Turquoise, the "fallen sky stone" is valued by the natives for its beauty and spiritual and life-giving qualities. Turquoise is a stone representing good luck, fortune, success, and good health.
