 A small specimen of Arsenian Pyrite with crystalline Gold in Quartz from the Black Diamond mine  in Plumas Co. CA. The Arsenopyrite  has been dissolved away from the specimen so the Gold can be seen in all its glory.  The Gold occurs in several modes: as thin leaves and blades, and as striated crystal replacements of the actual Arsenopyrite. Gold shows brilliant luster and a rich buttery-yellow color. A very interesting piece.
