Today we will start the two-part segment which presents and gives a little history to some of the most popular mines in Nevada as well as some more mysterious. We will start things with Cheyenne Turquoise.
Cheyenne Mine: Cheyenne is a relatively old mine called "Curry" or "Hidden Treasure". Tony and Trenton Otison, originally extracted for gold and silver, were betting on this claim several years ago in an attempt to reopen the mine and collect what it missed. Turquoise is formed here as a binary product of minerals. The beautiful colors found here cover almost the entire spectrum of the turquoise world. The green grid and the blue grid stand out from this mine. Cheyenne Turquoise rivals any color and grade mine in the world.
Verde Blue Mine: The Verde Blue Mine is a relatively unknown mine. Turquoise blue with a black grid is the predominant stone of this mine, and although it is a very beautiful stone, the mine is almost exhausted.
Apache Blue Mine: Also known as the Turkey Path, Apache Blue is a very small mine. Although it is still relatively shallow, the mine produces a perfectly beautiful blue stone with a black mesh matrix on the Internet. This high-quality stone is very rare and difficult to find, even in this mine, but it is what every turquoise miner is looking for.
