*The Timberline Turquoise mine is located in the far northern part of Elko County, Nevada, almost to the Idaho state line. It is the furthest north turquoise mine in the state. It was discovered in 1967 and in the years afterward produced a good quantity of fine spider webbed material of a good blue color during the turquoise "boom" of the late 1960s and 1970s. It is no longer being worked.

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
