Toenail, 2.8 x 2.4 x 0.3 cm
Round Mountain Mine, Round Mountain District, Nye Co., Nevada, USA

An sculptural, lustrous, yellow, leaf gold specimen from recent finds at Round Mountain, Nevada. Both sides of the compressed, leaf-like piece show what look to be very elongated, flattened spinel-twins with octahedral terminations on this fine specimen. Ex. Mark Mauthner Collection. Highly representative of this well-known gold mine.
