It’s all about the Turquoise (no #8) Number Eight mine in Eureka County Nevada, discovered in 1925. At present, the mine is closed and today mined for gold. The mine produced some of the largest nuggets of turquoise ever discovered, the colours grade from very light blue to blue-green with a matrix varying from golden brown to black. As with most mines, Number 8 turquoise has certain characteristic colour and matrix patterns that are very easily identified. Today, the blue & bluest Number 8 turquoise are quite rare and highly valued by collectors.
