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. Today, the blue & bluest Number 8 turquoise are quite rare and highly valued by collectors.
