Beautiful Stones Mined From an Old Lake in Nevada
There are turquoise mines located worldwide, but the United States is one of the best countries to find high-quality turquoise. Nevada is home to a world-renowned turquoise mine and boasts a rare and gorgeous strain of turquoise.
Carico Lake turquoise is found in Lander County, Nevada. The mine is south of Battle Mountain. The mine is named after a dried-up lake bed.
In the past, the stone was called by other names, like Aurora or Stone Canyon turquoise. Due to the harsh winter weather conditions and remote locations, there isn't a lot of time to mine this turquoise during the year. These factors contribute to its value as rare turquoise.
What Sets Carico Lake Turquoise Apart
The Carico Lake Mine produces a wide range of turquoise that ranges in color from light greens to dark blues. You can even find some stones with dark blue or yellow webbing.
The mine is most known for its lime green colored stones. The green color is caused by faustite, a close relative to turquoise. The combination of zinc and faustite creates a gorgeous coloration effect that you can't find anywhere else.
