The White Buffalo turquoise is found in veins surrounded by black chert from the White Buffalo mine in Tonopah, Nevada. Some people say it is not turquoise but the owner of the mine points out that its geological characteristics are the same as turquoise so he is calling it turquoise. What ever you call it, it is a stunning white color with a black and brown chert matrix running through it.
