New discovery from the Fire Creek Mine in North Central Nevada. the Fire Creek mine was initially discovered in 1979 and several large gold mining operations mined the vein with some success although the gold that was discovered was all melted into billion. A recent new company has taken over the mine and they have started preserving the special specimen gold that grows in pockets in the mine. This piece is one of a handful I recently acquired from the mine. The definition and clarity defies words and these natural gold crystals are some of the most amazing specimens I've seen from Nevada. Sharp crystal formations with intricate dendritic patterns and fine wires.
