Dry Creek Turquoise gets its color from the heavy metals in the ground where it forms. The Dry Creek Turquoise mine is located outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County and is on the opposite side of the mountain from the Godber (Brunham) Dry Creek turquoise mine. The Godber (Brunham) Dry Creek turquoise mine is towards Eureka and the Dry Creek turquoise mine is towards Battle Mountain, Nevada. Both mines have produced the light pastel (milky) blue turquoise material. Blue turquoise forms when there is copper present and green turquoise forms where iron is present, the turquoise from the Dry Creek mine has no heavy metals present, thus the pastel color. This is a very rare occurrence. These mines produce a creamy pastel-blue and blue-white turquoise, very hard, gemmy and available only in very small quantities. The matrix in Dry Creek Turquoise is typically light golden or brown-gray to gray-black. This is definitely collectors turquoise!
