Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
Dahlonega, Georgia, USA

A very rare locality piece with identifying and unusual matrix, showing rich seams of gold that seem to run throughout. Valid Georgia golds, and they must have enough matrix like this to be sure of it, are uncommon. This is likely a very old specimen, though no telling how old. It comes from the Richard Hauck gold collection, on display until recently in the Sterling Hill Mining Museum. Important, oldtime, US classic. 266 grams in weight, though obviously most of it is not gold.
