Miniature, 4.1 x 3.0 x 1.5 cm
Eagle's Nest Mine, Placer Co., California, USA

SUPERB top-percentile gold miniature from this mine! One of the most lustrous, gorgeous gold miniatures we have seen from this mine, for sheer mirror-like brightness combined with razor sharp crystallization. Brilliant, top percentile luster adds to the impact of this specimen, making it among my favorite gold miniatures (specimens in the 1.5-2 inch size range) from this location. When seen in person, it looks like gold-colored aluminum foil, it is so bright and so beyond the normal quality for the locale.
