Turquoise Fever

For three generations, the Otteson family has been unearthing the most sought-after turquoise in the world.

Turquoise Fever follows the clan as they risk danger and hostile conditions in a struggle to find gems long buried in the Nevada desert.

Just north of Las Vegas a real fortune awaits.

The unforgiving Great Basin Desert may not seem like an ideal place to strike it rich, but buried beneath the barren landscape is a treasure worth millions.

The challenge is knowing how to find it.

For three generations the Otteson family has been unearthing some of the most sought-after turquoise in the world.

Turquoise Fever follows the clan as they battle inhospitable conditions and intense dangers from their base of operations in Tonopah, Nevada.

From detonating explosives on treacherous slopes to the pressure of meeting the demands of international buyers, every day is a wild adventure and there is always a thin line between failure and success.

In the series premiere, "White Buffalo": When an important client arrives requesting the rare White Buffalo stone, the Otteson clan races against the clock to fulfill his request.
