This piece almost is an ounce in weight..however it is 50% Gold and 50% Silver by volume..not weight as Gold is twice as heavy as Silver.  Gold is a dark,  bronzy color and occurs as blebs, grains, and leaves in a quartz matrix. This was probably mined around 1900s. From an old collection.  Specimen has been treated with Mineral Oil to enhance the Gold..if desired it can be removed by soaking in alcohol.  Weighs .85 ounce. A specific gravity determination indicates 138 grains contained Gold/Electrum.
