mine is located east of Austin, Nevada and was discovered
in 1932. First claimed under the name “Last Chance”,
it was later sold to Frank Burnham and then in 1934
to Walter Godber. The turquoise ranges from medium to
dark blue usually with a beautiful spider webbing. It
has also been know for a very dark or black mottling
forming blotches and veins running through the stone.
Godber has always been considered a very high quality
turquoise. Oscar Branson in his book, “Turquoise”
has called Godber ‘so hard…’ and ‘some
of the finest turquoise in Nevada. Godber has always
been a very collectable turquoise.
