A small mine producing a uniquely colored stone with a dark brown to black webbed matrix, the Damele mine is located in Nevada, neighboring the Carico Lake Mine and the Godber-Burnham mine. Much of what is found today from the claim is Variscite, the turquoise often coming from older rough.The rare color of the Damele stone, ranging from yellow and green to soft grey, the hardness of the stone, and the limited quantities, make Damele a coveted collector's stone.
