Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 4.4 x 1.1 cm
Eagles Nest Mine, Placer County, California, USA

An elegant, elongated cluster of interwoven gold crystals of typical look for the Eagle's Nest mine, though a bit more heavy, robust and "unbendy" in thickness than is usual for a piece of this size & style: It masses 36 grams, so just about 1.1 ounces of gold. From the collection of Dr. William Pinch. Joe Budd photos
