Product Description

A unique and vibrant blue, it comes from Sleeping Beauty Mountain in Arizona where we found a deposit which lives up to our high expectations.

It is lightfast and permanent, with none of the transient colour fade which plagues most turquiose. Turquoise has a unique porous nature which produces granular washes. Juicy washes flow from the brush and drybrush work has the intense texture found only in a mineral pigment. 

Traditional mineral pigments have a muted feel, our unique Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Genuine has a true brilliance. We use the highest grade mineral which is found closest to the earth's surface, where environmental factors have enhanced the structure to gemstone quality and deepened the tonal richness to a remarkable blue. 

Historic references to turquoise date back as far as Egypt's first dynasty. Turquoise from the American Southwest has been unearthed in Aztec ruins and Persian turquoise was used as trading currency.
