Number 8 turquoise range in color from light blue to blue-green to dark blue. It’s always found with characteristic black, golden or brown spider web matrix, which makes them easy to identify. Number 8 is also known for its unusually large nuggets, the largest of which weighed an astonishing 150 pounds.
The Number 8 Turquoise Mine is located in Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. The Number 8 Turquoise Mine has been closed since 1976 due to the discovery of gold in the mine. Fortunately, Dowell Ward, the most recent owner of the mine still has a healthy stockpile of them. Today, Number 8 turquoise is considered to be one of the most valuable turquoise on the market and is a great addition to any collection.
