Miniature, 3.3 x 2.6 x 0.2 cm
Rosia Montana, Verespatak, Siebenburgen, Romania

An exquisite plate composed of intergrown, dense gold crystals. This is a rich and attractive miniature for this important, historic old locality and such specimens are hard to come by at a reasonable price (which I feel this one is at). Although there are no old labels, a friend of mine has taken the piece to copare to those in museums in Vienna and in Prague, to be certain of its legitimacy.
