    Gold on Quartz
    Unknown Mine, Timmins area
    Cochrane District, Ontario

    This Gold on Quartz has a natural sculptural form, with curvature and dimensionality. Broad rivers of crystalline Gold flow over the arching rock with a salt-and-pepper grayish coloration. The sparkling Gold covers a large amount of the matrix creating a highly aesthetic specimen in conjunction with the rock. Specific Gravity analysis indicates this example contains 5.5 troy ounces of net Gold. From the Timmins area in Ontario, this rather special piece had a most historical origin.
    Overall Measurements: 4.48 x 2.26 x 1.98 inches (11.37 x 5.75 x 5.03 cm), weighs 383 grams (5.54 oz t)

    Provenance: Ex. George Elling Collection
