Alleghany, Alleghany District (Forest District)
Sierra Co., California, USA
Crystalline Gold from California is some of the most highly sought after by all collectors - and for good reason. This piece of crystalline Gold shimmers bright as it coils around a cloudy, white Quartz matrix. This palm sized cleaned specimen exhibits a unique shape and weighs 356 grams, containing 10.1 troy ounces of Gold. This specimen has aesthetic "leafy" formations and an interesting "fused" grouping of Gold on one edge. This is a substantial and high quality, multi-dimensional collectible specimen from a famous American locality for Gold.
