Sacred Buffalo Turquoise was discovered in the Dry Creek Mine on the Shoshone Indian Reservation near Battle Mountain, Nevada in 1993, and started to appear in Jewelry by 1996. Sacred Buffalo Turquoise forms where there are no heavy metals present such as copper or iron. The lack of any specific color consistency makes this stone distinctive and unique from other turquoises.
Sacred Buffalo Turquoise is known as White Turquoise, but is not to be confused with White Buffalo, a.k.a. howlite, which is not considered Turquoise. Because this unique Turquoise from the Dry Creek Mine is as rare as the sacred buffalo, the Shoeshone Indians call it "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise.
Given its rarity, we offer only two large unique jewelry pieces with this type of Turquoise.
