++Boulder Turquoise++

Nevada has been an important source of turquoise since prehistoric times. The most recent interesting, and rare turquoise mine is located in Northeast Nevada. It was originally discovered in the 1970’s by a Shoshone sheepherder who stumbled upon a vein of turquoise on the hillside while tending sheep. Boulder turquoise can be easily identified by its narrow veins of turquoise running through host rocks of limestone, shale, and chert. Production from the mine has been small due to its remote location and weather conditions. Boulder turquoise is highly valued for its beauty, rarity, and wide range of color.
