Cheyenne is a relatively old inactive mine once called the "carrie" mine or "hidden treasure" mine. It was originally staked and mined for its silver and gold prospects. Tony and Trenton Otteson staked this claim several years ago to re-open the mine and gather the Cheyenne turquoise found here. The Cheyenne turquoise formed here is a bi-product of the mineral seem and colors here cover nearly the entire spectrum in the turquoise world. Standing out from this mine is the green web and the blue web, as shown below. This Cheyenne turquoise rivals any top mine for color and grade in the world.
