A piece that could only come from Mt. kare, Papua New guinea. A brilliant leaf gold with a bold gold color and lots of detail including some striated and hoppered gold crystal formations. This one is an easy choice to add some unique gold from a historic location to your collection. Mt. Kare gold is very rare these days and what wasn't melted down during the gold rush (1988-1994) is hoarded by collectors.
