Number 8 turquoise is considered one of the great classic American turquoise mines. It is located in the Lynn Mining District in Eureka County, Nevada, just north of Carlin.
Number 8 is known for its spider webbing and light blue to dark blue color with green shading. The matrix is usually golden to reddish brown and even black.
The Number 8 mine was closed in 1976 but the last owner, Dowell Ward, had a stockpile of the turquoise set aside that is now on the market. It is considered some of the finest turquoise ever found and is considered a collector’s item because once this reserve is gone there will be no more released on to the market.
The pendant is 1 3/4" x 1/2" (42mm x 14mm) and it includes a 1" x 1/2" (25mm x 14mm) No. 8 turquoise cabochon. the wire used for wrapping is a silver plated anti-tarnish artistic wire.
