Cripple Creek

Miners looking for gold also found the Cripple Creek turquoise deposits. The area yields some greenish turquoise and some light to dark blue turquoise with brown matrix. There are two separate mines that are currently active in this area. Although different families operated them, both mines market their turquoise under the Cripple Creek name and supply a variety of colors and matrices.
Silver Sun has only a mid grade quality.
