Breckenridge District, Summit Co., Colorado, USA

A gorgeous, aesthetic and very sculptural cluster of microcrystallized gold leaves from Breckenridge, Colorado. The leaves have a rich and beautiful, golden-yellow patina, typical of Breckenridge golds. There are even a couple of flattened wires on this old-time specimen. Almost certainly an old piece from the late 1800s when these mostly came out, though no proof. Ex. George Elling Collection.
