The Carico Lake color palette ranges from the highly unique electric greens to sky blue; from teal to mossy, earthy greens. And rarely, a nugget with both earth and sky color. The highest grade Carico Lake Turquoise is a gem quality American turquoise. Hard enough to be cut naturally, the high zinc content paints the stone an astonishing lime green color with a unique spider web matrix, creating a much sought after and collectible stone. The color is due to its zinc and copper content. Carico Lake stones can also display a dark blue-green color with a black spider web matrix. Recent finds are producing many new blue tones with even, black matrix. The colors and scarcity of Carico Lake turquoise make it a valuable addition to any collection. The Carico Lake mine also hosts another precious stone, faustite, which features a bright lime green color due to its higher zinc content.
