Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 3.2 x 1.5 cm
Mother Lode District, Tuolumne County, California, USA
This is a very hefty piece, at 103 grams, from a classic old US locality. This came out of an old collection of gold, sold at Tucson in 2005, that had many old California specimens. It was said to be from the Motherlode district, collected in the 1960s or earlier, and I was later told by a gold expert that in style this does indeed correspond to the Southern Lode and Tuolomne County material in color and habit. 103 grams or 3.3 ounces
