Mockingbird Mine, Whitlock Mining Dist., Mariposa Co., California, USA
Thumbnail, 1.4 x 1.2 x 0.8 cm
Ex. Gamini Ratnavira

Razor Sharp octahedral gold crystals to 4 mm adorn the top of this treelike display thumbnail specimen. Note how thick and sharp the crystals are, rare for gold. This is from important finds at the Mockingbird Mine in the early 2000s. It is complete all around, and better in person! Includes original watercolor painting by Gamini Ratnavira, as shown in 6x6 inch custom frame (he used to do commission paintings for mineral collectors in Southern California primarily, and charged $500-750 per painting).
