    These are a pair of bangles that I bought many years ago really because I liked them so I thought I would post them and would be pleased to know more about them .The metal in the larger bangle is very stiff.I was told that they were of Native American origin.
    Regards

    The neckless was gift from my parents to my wife while visiting them on their 65th wedding anniversary last week and the belt buckle has our family cattle brand.

    Guys tell me amount the Sleeping Beauty mine. I know they market this well but a jewelry friend of mind has a large necklace he traded for ( from the 1960's.) Is this still all hype or should I look more at it. It appears to be a nice bit of turquoise. thanks

    There is quite a bit of information online about turquoise, the mines it has come from and value, which is all over the board. Here is one discussion that attempts to show characteristic pieces from many of the more well known mines. There are other sites which attempt to differentiate grades/qualities/characteristics/value. Here is one such page. A google image search will help you appreciate the magical "zat" of individual stones which is another quality altogether.

    The Sleeping Beauty mine appears to have stopped production. Its turquoise is known for nice color and relative freedom from matrix.
