    This Crystallized Gold, from the famous Round Mountain District, of Nevada, weighs 7.5 ounces, and the sharp and shiny example with a rather light yellow coloration was mined from an area intermediate between the oxide and sulfide zones. A delicate appendage of Gold sticks out from the main mass in an aesthetic manner. Numerous complete octahedral crystals, some twinned, cover the natural piece that has a number broad, flat "leaf Gold" elements. This is unusual for its crystalline nature and coloration.
