Gold in Quartz
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 4.8 x 2.6 cm, 438 g
Quartzsite, La Paz Co., Arizona, USA

A robust gold in quartz nugget, with thick veins reaching through the quartz mass. This is a rare Arizona specimen, which I obtained in an old collection. It is 14 ounces, or 438 grams. It is very hefty, and the gold is probably 85% or more of that mass. Joe Budd photos.
