Miniature, 3.6 x 3.1 x 1.5 cm
Mother Lode District, Tuolumne County, California, USA
A hackly, complex mass of slender, elongated crystals perched on limonitic matrix, this is a very hefty piece for the size. It masses 58 grams and is nearly solid gold. In the midst of the unusual nest of slender crystals smothering the matrix is one single larger crystal 1.2 cm, of unusual habit. It looks like a twisted bar, in appearance. Unusual, old material from the classic Motherlode District!
