Nevada Turquoise Mines, O-Z

Nevada Turquoise Mines, O-Z:


*Note that many mines are closed, meaning once the stone supply is exhausted, they will no longer be available. Stones may still be available from a particular mine, making them highly collectible.* I have NOT included the following mines in this list: White Creek, White Stallion, White Buffalo, or White Owl. The stones produced from these mines are still considered controversial and deserve more research and discussion than what I'm offering in this article.

    1. Isn't it amazing, Tina? And those are just the Nevada mines. There are mines in Arizona and New Mexico.
