Miniature, 4.5 x 2.4 x 1.1 cm
Round Mountain Mine, Nye Co., Nevada

Richly crystallized on both sides with good luster and a buttery golden color, this very aesthetic Round Mountain gold specimen weighs 1/2 ounce. The crystallization LOOKS like the usual frilly, leafy style, but in fact it is very robust, and cannot be bent. This is a major miniature gold specimen, which in person looks much more 3-dimensional than flat photos can convey. From the personal collection of one of the major dealers in such things, sold to me in the early 2000's when this style came out.
