    Crystallized Gold
    Eagle's Nest Mine (Mystery Wind Mine)
    Sage Hill, Michigan Bluff District (Michigan Bluff deposit)
    Placer Co., California, USA





    This singular specimen of crystallized Gold is incomparable and shows a number of qualities that make it superlative for the famous locality that produced it. For an example from the Eagle's Nest Mine, this top collectible piece is unusually thick, displays extremely vibrant luster and exhibits superb octahedrons on one side. This is a truly outstanding Gold with amazing luster and displays a blend of gold and yellow hues resulting in a dramatic, impactful and museum-worthy representation. This 'magical' Gold weighs a robust 9.9 troy ounces, but it is really the expansive crystallized surface area of this virtually 6-inch (15 cm) wonder which makes it so rare, vivid, and sure to appeal to even the most discriminating collector. This is simply one superb crystallized Gold. The incredible Lot is accompanied by a custom acrylic base.
