Miniature, 4.2 x 1.5 x 0.4 cm
Colorado Quartz Mine, Midpines, Mariposa Co., California, USA

This is simply a superb gold, for any size, reflecting exquisite crystallization of a number of different crystal habits. I think the pics speak for themselves and for the quality of JP's eye in selecting the choicest specimens for his collection and dealer stock, here. Irv purchased it from the personal collection of now-deceased dealer JP Cand, a friend of both of us who tragically died doing what he loved best, collecting minerals.
