I almost never see something like this. A rare crystalline gold specimen with leaf gold from Mexico. A very rare and spectacular find weighing 2.73 grams (42.2 grains) and measuring 1/2" (13mm). The gold is a gorgeous buttery golden color and is very pure. From the color, I estimate the purity at 22KT to 23KT (92% to 98% pure). It was found in Northern Senora State in Mexico, near the town of Caborca, by a gold prospector (called a "Gambusino" in Mexico) using a Minelab metal detector. It was found in the same general area that the famous 389 troy ounce "Boot of Cortez" nugget was found. JM77
