    Description

    Crystallized Gold with Pyrite
    Alleghany Mining District (Forest Mining District)
    Sierra Co.
    California, USA

    This spectacular flame-shape crystallized Gold with Pyrite is a classic California piece with exceptional foil form over its thin and delicate golden leaves. Dark charcoal matrix near the base adds a contrast to the, otherwise, monochromatic brassy yellowish example. Out of the famed Alleghany Mining District, this is a highly aesthetic collector specimen with excellent luster and sublime form. This specimen weighs in at 17.75 grams, but it is the visual appeal which makes this such a special offering worthy of a top collection.
    Overall Measurements: 2.09 x 1.32 x 0.50 inches (5.31 x 3.36 x 1.27 cm), weighs 17.75 grams
