Dry Creek Turquoise comes from
a mine near the town of Austin,
Lander County, NV. It has a
colorful history, having been
first discovered in the early
1990s by the Shoshone Native
American tribe. The mining rights
were leased out. As it found it's
way into Native American jewelry,
the powdery blue turquoise with
brown matrix eventually gained
considerable favor. Miners in the
know say that when the Dry Creek
vein is exhausted, turquoise of this
color will be gone forever. Maybe
so, maybe not, but even if not true,
Dry Creek is not getting more plentiful.
Buy now and enjoy in the future.
