Derived south of Battle Mountain, Nevada, Blue Gem is a prized turquoise variety with a mining history that began in 1934. Renowned for its vivid and clear blue hue, it became popular for use in Zuni inlay as well as refined Navajo silverwork. Its exceptional rarity makes Blue Gem turquoise popular among both artisans and collectors as it is no longer actively mined.
