Indian Mountain Turquoise
An Indian Shoshone sheepherder was said to discover the lode in 1970, on the south range of Bald Mountain in Lander County, Nevada where he stumbled upon a vein of turquoise on a hillside while tending his sheep. The Indian Mountain was owned and operated by Ed Mauzy and J.W. Edgar, both legends in Nevada turquoise mining. Mining at Indian Mountain was carried on from late May to early October with a recovery of “about three pounds” of good turquoise a day. During winter the mine could be covered up in 10 feet of snow. "This mine hasn’t produced in over 20 years. Indian Mountain turquoise is rare and worth collecting if you can find it." It produced both blue and green turquoise, sometimes combined, with brown to black spider web.
Art In Motion Jewelry pieces are handcrafted by Artist Cheryl Whitney-Huebner. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. I do not mass produce my pieces and each one is created, photographed, packaged, and shipped by my hands only. Only the highest quality materials, ethically sourced natural stones are used in my work. Each piece of jewelry I make by hand. You can expect slight variations or inclusions, thus adding to the uniqueness of each piece. All monitors and screens vary in color and brightness. I do my best to depict the natural light and color shades of each stone.
