    ELLENDALE GOLD!!

    An obscure Nevada mining camp located close to Tonopah, NV.  A small specimen that has been cut with a diamond saw. The cut surface reveals small disseminated grains of apparent Electrum.  Electrum being a natural alloy of Gold and Silver where Silver exceeds 20% of the total alloy.  The Electrum in this specimen is very small occurring as 1 mm grains, with a very bright silvery luster. The specimen shows dark brown iron oxides (Goethite) flooding silicified Rhyolite.  This 1900s historic Gold camp only was occupied for a few years, and specimens are very uncommon.

    CURIOUS!!!

    Small crystalline Gold specimen from the Lincoln Hill mine. Gold is quite unique because it shows bright purple toning. This color shows on Silver coins  often and is highly desired. I do not know why it shows on this specimen, perhaps its due to heat from blasting .  Trace of Sphalerite and Pyrite.

    SHEEP RANCH GOLD!!

    Beautiful diamond-sawn slab showing deep, orangish, crystalline Gold in a dark, patchy, smoky gray Quartz. Pretty RARE STUFF!! This slab will provide numerous cabochons for any potential jewelry makers.  The Sheep Ranch Mine was discovered in 1867. It was found as a surface exposure of a high-grade Gold bearing, dark, smoky gray Quartz vein from 8 to 20 inches thick. The ore was often so rich in free Gold as to yield superb specimens. The Gold mineralization in the black, to blue black, smoky Quartz is today highly valued by collectors. Sulfides accounted for less than 0.5%.  One of the principal reasons for the mines closure in 1922 was an estimate of 50% of the Gold was lost to high-grading. Numerous owner/operators mined the deposit, until it was finally closed in 1942. It had the distinction of being the largest, and deepest mine in the East Gold Belt of the Mother Lode.
