Candelaria turquoise comes from the large Candelaria silver and gold mine in Nevada. It is currently closed with no mining activity, and as such the Candelaria turquoise is rare and considered a collectible. If you like this webbed stone, buy it up immediately. Candelaria turquoise is very rare and extremely hard to come by. It is now only found in small quantities from private collectors and occasionaly can be found it old tailing piles from the haydays of the silver mining.The best of the best quality, the top 1 or 2%, is so rare most collectors will never own a piece. We occasionally have this quality on our site, so check back often. It is a beautiful webbed stone as pictured below, with the color ranging from a light sea blue to a rich dark blue with varying colors of webbing.
