The Ithaca Peak turquoise mine was originally a copper mine and then this top quality turquoise was discovered. Turned out that there was more turquoise than copper in the mind. The mine changed its claim to turquoise.
The turquoise from Ithaca Peak has veins of copper and the turquoise tests harder than turquoise mined elsewhere. This is an important benefit because most turquoise has to be treated to make it harder. It is also why Ithaca Peak turquoise polishes to a higher luster. The Royston Turquoise mine's turquoise is similar.
