The most well-known nickname for Nevada is "The Silver State". "The Silver State" nickname dates back to the Nevada silver-rush days of the mid 1800's. At that time silver was literally shoveled off the ground in Nevada; heavy gray crusts of silver had formed on the surface of the desert over millions of years and were polished by dust and wind to the dull luster of a cow horn (called "horn silver").
