"Originally known as Stone Cabin, and then Aurora #8, Carico Lake Turquoise has a colorful history for a dried-up lake bed in a remote part of Lander County. Gus Stenich was one of the early miners to own the mine. Gus left the mine to JW Edgar, and after changing hands a few more times, the mine has come to rest with the owner of Sunwest Silver Company, Ernest Montoya. Sunwest Silver is home to one of the largest natural turquoise collections in North America." -Sunwest Silver
