Carico Lake turquoise comes from Lander County, Nevada. This turquoise mine has stones in shades that range from blue to green. Turquoise is one of the most popular gemstones in the world and has a fascinating history going back almost 7500 years. Turquoise is thought to have been discovered in Egypt and has since adorned Pharaohs and kings for thousands of years.
Turquoise was formed millions of years ago in arid climates such as Egypt or the Southwest United States. Turquoise is a chemical mixture of copper and aluminum phosphates that formed through a process of hydro-thermal replacement. Chemicals and minerals from nearby rocks are leached out by rain or other water and reformed in the crevices of other hosts, for instance: rhyolite, limestone or quartz These other host minerals make up the stone's matrix. The matrix is the brown or black surrounding the blue and green we know as turquoise.
