A  medium-sized, crystalline Gold specimen from the National Mine. Technically this is Electrum, a natural alloy consisting of 50% Gold, and 50% Silver. Gold occurs as abundant leaves, blebs,  and rods . Gold shows a bronze-like color and brite luster.  Specimen has been treated with mineral oil to enhance the contrast with the Electrum and the matrix.  To remove use hot water, or plain rubbing alcohol. A special specific gravity determination for electrum indicates 74.3 grains of Gold.  Found using a Goldbug2 metal detector. This is a famous old, historic, Nevada mining camp.
