The Carico Lake mine is named after the dried up lake bed in Nevada where this unique material is mined. The mine produces a wide variety of turquoise ranging in color from dark blues to light blues and greens, some with yellow or dark blue "water" webbing. 

Being a lake bed, the mine also produces rare and highly collectible clam pseudo-morphs: ancient clam fossils in which the turquoise filled the natural cavities of the shells.

Over the years, Carico Lake has also been sold under the names Aurora and Stone Cabin turquoise under previous owners. Today the claim is owned by Ernie Montoya of Albuquerque, NM and is actively being mined.
