    Gold on Quartz
    Copper Rand Mine, Chibougamau mining district
    Nord-du-Québec, Québec
    Canada

    This Gold on Quartz specimen from Quebec looks like what a Native Gold from Canada should. Opaque Quartz with a stained sort of coloration housing several large and attractive patches of sharp crystallized Gold. The hue of the precious metal is classic golden-yellow, and some sheets of Gold are visible folded amid the cluster of complex and intricate deposits. This beautiful rock with its duality of minerals is one for the discerning collector given the developed form of the crystallized material that rests on its matrix.
    Overall Measurements: 2.29 x 1.68 x 1.67 inches (5.81 x 4.27 x 4.24 cm), weighs 136 grams

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