Gold in Pyrite
Mariposa Co.
California, USA

This unique Gold in Pyrite specimen boasts a hammered nature to its brassy gold top with an abundance of discreet crystals. The rugged covering of 'nuggety' faces grew on top of a charcoal gray layer, atop a rocky mass of white Quartz. This truly spectacular collectible miniature is quite impressive for the large Gold section but also offers a small 'sidecar' of crystalline Gold on the dark matrix attached to the milky white Quartz. The overall weight of this uniquely special mineral association is 81 grams and well over 2.5 troy ounces.
Overall Measurements: 1.96 x 1.42 x 1.04 inches (4.99 x 3.61 x 2.65 cm), weighs 81 grams (2.59 oz t)

[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
