Miniature, 5.5 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm
Colorado Gold Quartz Mine, Mariposa Co., California, USA

From the California gold mine that has produced the most valuable crystallized golds, this specimen, shaped like a cornucopia, contains numerous sharp octahedrons up to 2.5 mm across. It is a really hefty piece, and has great appeal for the sheer mass of the gold, BUT it also has good crystallization at a relatively "nuggety" price despite that fact. It weighs 2 ounces/ 61 grams.
