    Gold

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

    Opening like a blooming flower coming off a matrix of milky white Quartz, this crystallized foil of Gold is thin, light, and shiny. The display face is replete with sparkling luster reinforced naturally with a backing of Quartz that comes through the hollow spaces on the Gold. The matrix on the reverse side goes all the way to a charcoal gray color giving the exposed Gold on the back a very different look even though there is still quite a lot of the striking precious metal. This matrix specimen is out of the famous Eagle's Nest Mine.
    Overall Measurements: 1.65 x 1.32 x 0.79 inches (4.20 x 3.36 x 2.00 cm), weighs 12 grams

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