Lander Blue is almost entirely spider-webbed turquoise with colors from medium to deep blue and a black contrasting matrix. Although some other grades were found, only 90 to 110 pounds of the beautiful spider-web turquoise was mined. Lander Blue was a “Hat Mine,” so called because you could cover it with a hat. Today, this is the rarest of all Southwestern turquoise “classics” is also of the highest grade and thus pound for pound, the most valuable turquoise in the world.
Indian Mountain A Indian Shoshone sheepherder was said to discovered the lode in 1970, on the south range of Bald Mountain in Lander County, Nevada where he stumbled upon a vein of turquoise on a hillside while tending his sheep. Mining at Indian Mountain was carried on from late May to early October with a recovery of “about three pounds” of good turquoise a day. This mine hasn’t produced in over 20 years. Indian Mountain turquoise is rare and worth collecting if you can find it. It produced both blue and green turquoise, sometimes combined, with brown to black spider web.
