Gold, Quartz
Miniature, 4.3 x 3.2 x 1.5 cm
Eagle's Nest Mine (Mystery Wind Mine), Placer Co., California, USA

Elegant, graceful clusters of flattened octahedra sit atop a natural pedestal of quartz matrix; making this a showy miniature with quite a lot of pizzazz for any gold. (In person, it is GORGEOUS and has brilliant luster as you can see from reflected light spots in the pictures. Moreover it has GOLDEN, not brassy, color to it...that extra 10% of yellow makes a distinct difference compared to others here. Also, the crystals are SHARP, better in person.4.3 x 3.2 x 1.5 cm
