Used for many generations this style of arranging stones in common within Native jewelry. Clusters are typically arranged in a sunburst or "flower" pattern with smaller, evenly spaced stones encircling a larger center stone. However, clusters can also be random, showcasing the stones natural shapes.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is one of the most recognizable of all North American turquoises. Beloved for its solid blue stone with no matrix, and ranging in color from bright royal blue to pale sky blue, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise comes out of the ground near Globe, AZ. As of today, the mine is closed for production, which has greatly increased the value of Sleeping Beauty stone in all forms.
