🍀🍀The Number 8 Mine is in the Lynn Mining District in Eureka County, Nevada. First Claimed in 1929 by Earl Buffington and Lawrence Springer, the Number 8 Mine would later be owned by many well known individuals in the Nevada Turquoise world over time like Ted Johnson, Doc Wilson, Myron Clark, Lee Hand, the Edgar brothers and Dowell Ward. In the 1950's the Edgar's began looking for copper only to discover a 1600lb deposit of some of Nevada's finest highest grade spiderweb turquoise. The shades of turquoise coming from the Number 8 Mine vary from light blue, blue with shades of green to dark blue and dark green. The spider webbing can range from black, golden, red or brown. With the black and the red spider webbing being the most valued. Today, unfortunately the mine is considered depleted and hasn't produced turquoise for a number of years.🍀🍀
