One of my best gold crystals from the prestigious Eagles Nest Mine in California. The gold is a dense nugget quality that is typical from this mine. The color is fantastic and so is the crystallization. A brilliant and large piece from Eagles Nest. The mine is now closed and environmental concerns and regulations are taking their toll on the California gold mines. It's unfortunate and I'm afraid it is the end of an era for California's gold mines. The only operating hard rock gold mine left in California is the Colorado Quartz Mine in Mariposa County. I have spoken with the mine owner and they are having a difficult time keeping the mine open and producing.
