Gold With Sphalerite
Musariu Mine, Brad, Transylvania, Romania
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.1 x 0.4 cm
Ex. Carnegie Museum
A very attractive "leaf gold" that looks like a leaf, from this old classic locale. It was confirmed for Mark that it is Musariu Mine by the association, and from having been compared in person to specimens in European museum collections. This specimen gives you a good visual area for hte price, and is totally classic of the common Transylvania style. It could be cleaned and brightened, but I like the old look of it.
