Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.0 x 1.2 cm
Round Mountain Mine, Round Mountain District, Nye Co., Nevada, USA
A fine and unusual gold specimen from the Round Mountain Mine of Nevada and the Mark Mauthner Gold Collection. Lustrous, light golden plates and microcrystals richly coat both sides of the feather-like or fan-shaped matrix of rhyolite ash flow tuff. It is finely crystallized, but looks like elegant leaf gold at the same time. An interesting looking specimen from this famous mine.
