Blue Ridge Turquoise Pendant
Turquoise from the Blue Ridge Mine is highly prized by collectors and high-end jewelry crafters for its rare mix of striking blue and vivid green stones. The latter of which is often referred to as Orvil Jack turquoise, after the original miner who discovered these entrancing turquoise deposits.
Positioned near Crescent Valley and Gold Acres in Nevada, the Blue Ridge Mine produces only a rare amount of blue and yellowish green turquoise. Due to the presence of zinc, this mine remains one of the most unique deposits for its variety of color.
