Easter Blue Pit
Turquoise Miner - Denver Otteson at Easter Blue mine
Easter Blue Mine
The Easter Blue mine, discovered in 1907, is near Tonopah, Nevada, in the Royston district. The mine has yielded very little turquoise, but the first turquoise found there was Easter or robin's egg blue, hence the name of the mine. The later yield of the mine has included very attractive large mottled spider web matrix with light blue centers in the webbing, as well as deep blue-green with light to dark brown matrix.
This mine is owned by the Otteson Family
