Crow Springs Turquoisewas discovered in 1909 near Tonopah, Nevada. This mine produces a high percentage of green tone turquoise with pretty tan and brown matrix - like this stone. The Crow Springs mine has gone through several owners and several periods of inactivity. The mine has re-opened recently and because it is not frequently mined, Crow Springs turquoise is considered very collectible.
