In the late 1500s, Native Americans first saw the crescent shaped design, now associated with most squash blossoms, on the bridles of Spanish Conquistadors. Over time, the Natives began to create and wear Squash Blossom necklaces as part of their ceremonies. 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. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is known for how few inclusions it has. The stone has a "pure" color. The color of Turquoise is determined by the mineral oxidation. The more iron, the bluer the Turquoise, and the more copper the stone contains, the greener the appearance.
