Eagles Nest Mine, Placer Co., California, USA

This is a very robust, 3-dimensional, sharp gold octohedron showing complex hopper faces. It is sharp as can be wished for, and perched up on a smaller side crystal. The main octohedral faces reach to 11 mm. This is an exceptional quality for the Eagle's Nest Mine, of a style of crystallized gold seen more commonly from the Mockingbird and even then quite rare.
