Number 8 Turquoise is one of the great Nevada turquoises and a personal favorite of mine. In its prime, the Number 8 mine produced some of the largest nuggets of turquoise ever found. The Number 8 mine was closed in 1976 as a result of the discovery of gold in the area and it has been swallowed up by the gold mining operations. Since 1976 there has been no Number 8 turquoise mined.
