The Candelaria Turquoise mine, located in Nevada's Candelaria Mining District, boasts a rich history and is one of the most sought-after sources for high-quality turquoise. The mine's origins date back to the mid-1800s when it was primarily used for mining silver, copper, and gold. Candelaria Turquoise is so highly valued due to its hardness, which allows for precise lapidary work. The combination of its hardness, rich colors, unique matrix patterns, and scarcity has contributed to a very high demand for this turquoise.
