White Buffalo Turquoise got its name from the Native Americans who saw the beauty and purity of this stone and believed it to be as rare as a white buffalo. This stone has only been discovered in one mine worldwide.

The “Open Range” Lariat Necklace Set, $2,800, hippiecowgirlcouture.com.

This unique vein was discovered in the Dry Creek Mine on the Shoshone Indian Reservation near Battle Mountain, Nevada in 1993.

With only a single deposit known in existence, and a very limited quantity remaining to be mined, this stone is quite rare and valuable!

The difference between this and other turquoise is that it lacks the presence of heavy metals like copper, iron, or zinc, which add the common turquoise colors in the blue-green-yellow spectrum.
