Miniature, 4.4 x 3.5 x 0.1 cm
Eagle's Nest Mine (Mystery Wind Mine), Placer Co., California, USA

This is a floater cluster of very FINELY CRYSTALLIZED gold of several distinct crystal habits, intergrown in an delicate-looking but actually quite sturdy arrangement. In person, this sculptural quality is really quite apparent and the subtle turns and twists and junctions make it a very mesmerizing piece with lots of flash for the price. As gold is notoriously difficult to photograph, it is BETTER In PERSON. approx 11 grams 4.4 x 3.5 x 0.1 cm
