A curious Gold specimen from the Michigan Bluff Mining District, in Placer Co. California. The piece shows buttery-yellow, crystallized, metallic native gold. The Gold forms mirror-like, thick, flattened octahedrons that show arborecent leaf development. Trace Quartz matrix remains.
A wondrous Crystalline leaf Gold specimen from the famous Harvard Mine in Jamestown, CA. Brilliantly lustered, orangish-yellow Gold is shot through snow white Quartz. The character of the Gold resembles a dragon, a beautiful specimen. This piece has not been etched. The Harvard Mine is now flooded and is within the town of Jamestown city limits -hence no mining allowed-ever!
A Gorgeous specimen from a unique classic Nevada location. First time I have had Gold from this area. Rich Gold ore was discovered in this area by Shorty Harris in 1904. This started a Rush and shortly several towns were established. Rhyolite NV is close to this area. This Gold specimen has traveled some in the alluvial environment as seen by some wear and rounding on the Gold. The Gold exhibits a rich brassy color, and bright luster. The Gold is shot through the white Quartz as thick bands. There are also a few % of tiny black Tourmaline crystals intimately associated with the Gold. (very unusual) A Specific Gravity Determination indicates 23.2 Grams Gold.
A lovely Gold leaf specimen reported as from the famous Eagles Nest mine, Michigan Bluff Mining District, in Placer Co. California. The specimen exhibits brilliant luster, and buttery-yellow color. The Gold forms brilliant, mirror-like, flattened octahedrons. Trace Quartz.
An exquisite specimen from the famous De Maria mine, Michigan Bluff Mining District, in Placer Co. California. The piece shows buttery-yellow, crystallized, metallic native gold shot through translucent white, milky quartz. The gold runs though the quartz and is exposed throughout most of the specimen. The Gold forms mirror-like, flattened octahedrons that show arborecent leaf development. A museum quality specimen!!! Totally un-treated.
