Carico Lake turquoise is named after the location of its mine in Nevada, USA. Its clear, iridescent, spring green color is due to its zinc content and is highly unique and collectible. Carico Lake turquoise is also found in a dark blue-green color with a black, spider web matrix. Primarily a gold producing mine, the turquoise part of the mine is occasionally leased out to individual miners who are permitted to work that part. The limited amount of Carico Lake turquoise, and the limited amount of time allowed to mine it, combine to make Carico Lake turquoise a valuable collector's turquoise.
