Gold on Quartz
Miniature, 3.7 x 3.2 x 1.7 cm
Brusson mine, Brusson, Aosta Valley, Italy

A flashy, handsome miniature of very bright yellow gold from the Brusson mine in Italy, the little brother to the one listed above. This piece is hosted by a contrasty quartz matrix and the gold is three-dimensional with great eye appeal! It looks like a miniature crown emanating from the quartz! There is a 2mm pyrite cube and several submillimeter pyrites placed randomly as accents. Ex. J. M. Welting collection with label.
