Candelaria turquoise was mined in an area not too far from Tonopah, Nevada in the Candelaria Hills. There is little reference to Candelaria turquoise in the mining literature. The turquoise in this area was usually found in thin veins and is known for its beautiful almost electric blues sometimes with a light matrix. Some of the material rivaled the bright Blue Gem turquoise that was used in inlay and Navajo jewelry. Turquoise has been produced in the Candelaria area very sporadically over the years. It was mined along with the silver and gold ore that made Candelaria mining famous at one point in Nevada's history. Mining operations were originally established in 1863 and began being worked heavily by the early 1870's.

Additional policies

I use extreme measures to accurately photograph the cabochons I sell. I have tried my best to capture the cabochon's true colors. Unfortunately digital photography has its limitations when it comes to hues in the blue and green spectrums. There are also color variations between computer monitors. In most cases the cabochon color is better in person.
