The name derives from the Native American belief that white buffaloes are pure and rare like the white buffalo turquoise stone.
This stone lacks the defining teal green color of classic turquoise but its black spider webbing pattern is reminiscent of turquoise.
Blue turquoise grows in copper mines and therefore develops its blue-green color whereas white buffalo turquoise grows next to magnesium that bleaches the stone’s pigment.
