Cabinet, 9.5 x 8.5 x 1.0 cm
Eagle's Nest Mine, Placer Co., California, USA
This is a large, bush-shaped gold of classic style for the Eagle's Nest Mine. It is large, elegant but robust and not fragile. Eagle's Nest golds in this size have become increasingly rare both on the market and from the mine itself. This piece has a huge amount of surface area for the price, presenting very dramatically. Few golds of this size maintain fine crystallization throughout the entire specimen as it presents. This piece, however, is equally fine side to side, top to bottom. It looks great from both sides and the choice of a front face is simply arbitrary. This is an older specimen, mined not more recently than early 2000's and probably long before..Joe Budd Photos
