Genuine Number 8 Mine Turquoise Stones set in Sterling Silver. Beautiful Pendant and Earrings Set with an 18" Sterling Silver Chain. Created by Navajo Artists Elaine Baca and Eva King. Signed by the artists. The Number 8 mine is located in Eureka County Nevada. Since 1976 there has been no Number 8 Turquoise mined. There is however, an existing stock pile that Mr. Dowell Ward, the last owner of the Number 8 mine, had stocked away for later sorting. The Turquoise is a collector's item--because once the reserve is gone there will be no more material released onto the market. The Gold Mining Company owns the claim to the Number 8 mine and it has been swallowed up by the gold mining operations. This is some of the last Number 8 Turquoise to be had and will be a great addition to your collection.
