NOTE: Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
Dry Creek Turquoise (Battle Mountain, Nevada) has a very pale blue color because there is very little copper or iron in the ground where it forms. Stones from the same mine that are white, with no blue or green color, are called Sacred Buffalo Stone or White Buffalo Stone because the white buffalo is a very rare and sacred buffalo.
