One of my absolute best gold specimens from the Round Mountain mine in Nye County, Nevada. A natural gold nugget that defies words with an amazing cluster of layered trigon crystals in perfect formation. Incredibly rare to see this formation and then to have it still attached to the quartz makes it an even more rare site to see. Yes, this gold specimen actually formed naturally over many thousands of years deep inside a pocket in a mountain in Nevada. Nature creates some amazing works of art and this one is a masterpiece.
