Every collector should have at least one piece of Olinghouse gold in their collection. The gold is magnificent and unlike any other. This piece is simply brilliant with a deep gold color and a large nest of fine gold wires intermingled together. Beautiful and rare.
I recently spoke to the mine owner and after a long break (20 years) of being closed, they are hoping to reopen and start mining again. This piece is simply brilliant and the gold is almost sponge gold with the super fine gold crystals that make up the entire specimen. a wonderful deep gold color that is a bit more unusual for this location.
Weight: 3.89 grams (59.96 grains)
