White Buffalo Stone (Sacred Buffalo Stone, White Turquoise) is white with black and brown inclusions. It is sometimes called "white turquoise" but by definition turquoise contains copper (it is a copper aluminium phosphate), which is what gives turquoise its characteristic blue color. Presence of iron will shift the color toward green. Although White Buffalo Stone resembles turquoise in hardness and will polish to a high shine like turquoise, it has no copper and no blue color, so is technically not turquoise. As far as we know, White Buffalo Stone comes from only one mine in Nevada, which is owned by the Otteson family. Howlite, a softer more porous black and white stone is commonly passed off as White Buffalo Stone (it is also dyed to resemble turquoise).
