Dry Creek Sacred Buffalo Turquoise
When discovered in the Dry Creek Mine on the Shoshone Indian Reservation near Battle Mountain, Nevada in 1993, they were not sure what it was. Because of its hardness, they decided to send it to have it assayed and their suspicions proved correct; it was in fact turquoise. It was not until 1996, however, that it was finally made into jewelry. Turquoise gets its color from the heavy metals in the ground where it forms. Blue turquoise forms when there is copper present, which is the case with most Arizona turquoise. Green turquoise forms where iron is present, the case with most Nevada turquoise. Sacred Buffalo turquoise forms where there are no heavy metals present, which turns out to be a very rare occurrence. The lack of any specific color consistency makes this stone distinctive and unique from other turquoises. To date, no other vein of this turquoise has been discovered anywhere else and when this current vein runs out, that will be the last of it. Authentic Sacred Buffalo Turquoise is from the Dry Creek Mine. Sacred Buffalo Turquoise is known as white turquoise, but is not to be confused with white buffalo, aka Howlite. They are not the same. Howlite (white buffalo) is a beautiful stone but it is not a turquoise. Do not be confused or misled into believing that howlite is white turquoise. Because this unique turquoise from the Dry Creek Mine is as rare as the sacred buffalo, the Indians call it "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise. The Shoshone Indians are not known for jewelry work and as a consequence, the Shoshone sell or trade the Sacred Buffalo turquoise to the Navajos in Arizona and New Mexico, who then work it into jewelry. So many geologic chains of events must synchronize to create just one thin vein of turquoise that the mineral can rightly be envisioned as a fluke of nature. Turquoise is a rare and improbable product of an incalculable number of chemical and physical processes that must take place in the right combination and proper environment over a time span of hundreds of thousands - if not millions - of years.
Valued sacred by Native Americans, turquoise has long been considered a master healer said to assist the absorption of nutrients whilst strengthening the immune system and stimulating tissue regeneration. Its special strengths aid in healing the respiratory, waste and skeletal systems. It is also recommended by crystal healers for detoxification of alcohol, poisons or radiation. Also for infections, high blood pressure asthma and problems with the teeth and mouth. Brings its wearer good luck. Turquoise is used as a metaphysical aid in any situation where clear communication is needed and also as an aid to public speaking. Can also be used to open connections between friends, allowing love to flow whilst enabling true, selfless bonding.

It is especially with the 5th ( throat) chakra and can also assist in opening the 4th (heart) chakra.
