The Fox Turquoise mine, once called the Cortez mine, is found in Lander County, Nevada. It was one of the largest producing mines in Nevada. The location was known to Native Americans in the area for centuries, but the first official claim was filed in 1914 by Charles Schmidtlein and Johnny Francis.
Fox Turquoise can be found in various shades of green and blue with both often occurring in the same stone. The higher grade material is quite hard, though much of the stone produced required treatment to be used in jewelry. The mine is no longer in operation.
