This Blue Gem turquoise is a product of a northern Nevada turquoise mine once located south of Battle Mountain in the Copper Basin area. The mine was one of the larger producers of great turquoise and supplied material to Southwestern artists in nearly every shade of green and blue. The amazing variety of turquoise from the Blue Gem mine made it highly valued and widely used. Because of its hardness and fine colors, Blue Gem turquoise is still much sought after by the likes of skilled artisans, such as John Huntress. This beaded choker is an outstanding example of what can occur when a fine artist gets his hands on an old stash of high-grade and natural Blue Gem turquoise.
