A nice price for a gold crystal from the Eagles Nest Gold Mine. The gold from that location has always carried a premium and is prized by collectors and investors around the world. This piece has a well crystalized "star" shape perched on top of the quartz and it reminds me of a flower. The Eagles Nest Mine is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California and has been closed for some time. It was recently repurchased and may open again one day.
Weight: 2.11 grams (32.6 grains)
