Blue star is a tiny hat claim located in the Candelaria Hills of north central Nevada. The claim is located atop a windswept mountain top that is so dangerous to reach that is also called the Widowmaker. The name difference is the slight variance in the look of the turquoise. Widowmaker features more of a black web whereas Blue Star features the red. A tiny amount of superb gem grade was mined by hand several years ago.
