    In , the Army, working with the Atomic Energy Commission, carried out the Desert Rock Exercises, an experiment to "dispel much of the fear and uncertainty surrounding atomic radiation and the effects of gamma and x-rays." A tent encampment was set up about 27 miles from where the atomic explosions were detonated on the Nevada Proving Grounds.   In fact, it has been the 51st area in which the Atomic Energy Commission Nevada Proving Grounds has been situated. In addition, Area 51 is the place for the examination of atomic bombs that is why it is a restricted place. Aside from this, the main purpose of this center is to provide as the training ground for spy planes and reticent operation.

Nevada turquoise is found in thin veins, seams, and nodules. Some material is hard, solid rough that cuts well and accepts a great polish. Other material must be stabilized with backing or resins to produce a good cabochon. Nevada turquoise occurs in the typical range of blue, blue-green and greenish colors, with iron-rich specimens being on the green end of the color range.
