White Buffalo Stone, commonly called White Buffalo Turquoise, is from a single mine near Tonopah, Nevada. It is known for its distinct beauty and purity. While similar to turquoise in its structure and formation, its stunning white and black color is due to the lack of heavy metals like copper, iron, and zinc, which are responsible for the characteristic blues and greens found in turquoise. With only a single mine in existence, the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted.
