Stone Lore: 
Candelaria Turquoise is one of the rarest turquoise stones in the world. The mine had a very limited production of turquoise as it was primarily a metal ore mine and the turquoise originated from a very inaccessible part of the mine. The mine opened in 1863 and is located in Nevada, USA.
