Miniature, 4.5 x 2.1 x 1.2 cm
Round Mountain Mine, Nye County, Nevada, USA

An EXCEPTIONALLY sharp, robust, crystallized gold dating from the noted finds here of the mid-2000s. Now, the mine is not in the crystallized zone again and these have become quite rare - although this would have been a choice miniature even when they were, briefly. available. The crystal is sharp, and complete on both sides, with such a robust and unique style that these are immediately recognizable as from no other locality seen to date. I value this particular style from the mine above most others, as these long, steeply terminated crystals are so unique. ex Gene Meieran Collection
