Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is a variety of turquoise from Arizona characterised by an intense sky blue color, which is extremely popular among Native American artists, particularly from the Zuni Pueblo. The Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine 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.
Snakeskin Jasper is a variety of jasper that gets its name from its striking banded pattern produced by the alternating layers of heavy iron.It is extracted from the Weeli Wolli Iron Formation in western Australia, which has an age around 2.5 billion years old and is one of the largest deposits of iron in the world.
The scarab symbol has been revered since ancient Egypt for representing the cycle of life, creation, death and rebirth. It has also been used as a form of protection by many cultures. If you are curious about the history of this fascinating talisman you can learn more here.
