Thumbnail, 1.8 x 1.2 x 0.9 cm
Diltz Mine, Bear Valley, Whitlock District, Bagby-Mariposa-Mount Bullion-Whitlock District, Mariposa Co., California, USA

A beautifully burnished and sculptural gold thumbnail from the famous Diltz Mine of Mariposa County, California. This cutie has three sharp, gold crystal forms! Feather-like spinel-twins, cubes and octahedrons. Uncommon to have all three in such sharpness. Ex Al McGuinness and Bob Byers Collections.
