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.
