Gold (3 Cm Twinned Crystal!)
Miniature, 6.0 x 4.7 x 1.0 cm
Eagle's Nest Mine, Placer County, California, USA

WOW! Eagle's Nest does not produce many crystals of this size, at all. This specimen features a SHARP 3 cm twinned gold crystal sticking straight out into the air, and balanced aesthetically by opposing crystals reaching towards it from the other side of the specimen. I've never seen the like, for this habit, from the locality. This is a THICK, STURDY specimen, and is not thin and flimsy at all. It is incredibly dramatic because of the ultra-dominating crystals atop, and stands nicely for display atop a custom-made lucite pedestal.
