The Artru Gold Mine sits right next door to the Colorado Quartz Mine high in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Mariposa County. The mine has been closed for sometime but a prospector was allowed to detect gold there on the surface recently. This is a piece that was found along with a handful of others I was able to purchase. It has a beautiful form and fantastic luster.
