Some of the most interesting gold crystals in the world came from Mt. Kare during it's time in operation - brilliant and intricate gold crystals. But most are on the small side and range between one and five grams. Never have I seen a 17 gram gold crystal with this caliber from Mt. Kare. It's a museum gold specimen based on it's size, sharpness of the crystals, and purity. A brilliant yellow gold with a purity estimated at 97% gold. There are no dull or worn crystals and it is completely made up of sharp and faceted octahedron and trigon crystals. A true one of a kind from Mt. Kare and a centerpiece in any prestigious collection. This is one of my best from my personal collection when you consider its rare location and brilliance of the crystals. I am offering it for sale, but perfectly happy if it stays with me as it's one of my favorite gold specimens.
