- Miniature, 4.8 x 2.1 x 0.6 cm
- Red Ledge Mine, Sierra Co, California, USA
An elegant, curvaceous gold "leaf" from this classic American locality, often associated with the Gold Rush era specimens. Specimens like this are in museums, dating to the 1800s. However, a modern era pocket was found by metal detector in the 1970s, and this is more likely from that find, due to its pristine condition. Complete all around, it is a floater "leaf" of crystallized gold. This is a full miniature, from a classic and hard to obtain USA locale.
