Round Mountain Mine, Round Mountain District, Nye Co., Nevada, USA

This fine, bright gold specimen is highlighted by a large, flattened octahedron, that looks like a shelf, that the rest of the gold specimen rests on. Angled, blocky, elongated, octahedrons in spinel-twinned, echelon growth and small octahedrons comprise the rest of this strikingly formed gold specimen from recent finds at the Round Mountain Mine of Nevada.
