>>> The Dry Creek mine is a small mine located in Lander County outside of Austin, NV. Sometimes referred to as Sacred Buffalo turquoise, the Dry Creek turquoise mine was discovered in the early 1990s by the Shoshone Indian tribe. Turquoise naturally gets its color from the presence of heavy metals, particularly aluminum and copper. Dry Creek turquoise forms in an area with low concentrations of both metals. This very rare situation results in the pale blue color found in Dry Creek turquoise. Dry Creek turquoise is naturally hard and takes a nice polish. No other vein of this material has been discovered anywhere in the world.
