The Colorado Quartz Mine is a special place for me as I know the owner very well and have been in the depths of the mine to watch as they hunt for some of the worlds finest gold. The process is incredibly difficult and challenging, not too mention very expensive to keep the mine operating. This is arguably the best gold mine in California for crystalized gold specimens and this beautiful 20 gram specimen is a fantastic example with outstanding luster and crystallization over the entire piece.
Weight: 20.06 grams (309 grains)
Dimensions: 1-1/8" or 33mm
