The Number Eight (Number 8 or #8) turquoise mine in Eureka County north of Carlin, Nevada was discovered in 1925 and first mined in 1929. The mine produced some of the largest nuggets of turquoise ever discovered. Almost all the turquoise produced is of the spider web type, with the matrix varying from golden brown to black. The colors grade from very light blue to very dark blue, some with interesting tints of green. As with most mines, Number 8 turquoise has certain characteristic colors and matrix patterns that are very easily identified.

The Number 8 mine was closed in 1976 but the last owner, Dowell Ward, had a stockpile of the turquoise set aside that is now on the market. It is considered some of the finest turquoises ever found and is a collector’s item. This is because once this reserve is gone there will be no more released on the market.
