Carico Lake Turquoise is named for its home on a dried-up lake bed in high, cool Lander County, Nevada. The clear, iridescent, spring green color is due to its high zinc content, and it is very unique. Carico Lake stones can also own dark blue-green color with a black spider web matrix. The colors and scarcity of Carico Lake make it a valuable addition to any collection.
