About Number Eight Turquoise

Number Eight Turquoise and Gold Ring

The Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. The mine has not produced Turquoise for a number of years. The Number Eight Turquoise mine was bought up by a gold mining company that does not mine the Turquoise, nor lease out the rights to the Turquoise. There is still quite a bit of #8 Turquoise available through collections and other holdings, though much of what is left in rough is chalk material that needs to be stabilized. The best, natural spiderweb Material from the #8 Turquoise mine is rare and highly coveted today.

The color of Number 8 varies from light blue, blue with shades of green to beautiful dark blue. It is found with a black, golden, red or brown matrix. The classic look of Number Eight Turquoise is light blue with a golden brown spiderweb matrix. Most Number Eight Spiderweb Turquoise cabochons you will see in collections and jewelry will have this look. The black and red spider web Number Eight Turquoise is the rarest and most Valuable. Today Number 8 turquoise is one of the most valuable stones that can be collected and one of the most beautiful that can be used in jewelry. High-grade Number 8 turquoise is by far some of the finest Turquoise to ever have come out of Nevada.
