Another "wow" from Round Mountain in Nye county, Nevada. A brilliant little triangle of wire gold with sharp and faceted octahedron crystals making up the separate wires...a rare and brilliant specimen. Round Mountain gold is certainly some of the most interesting gold in the world. Sadly, the mine has stopped preserving the specimen gold that they mine and stopped doing so in 2016 when it was fully bought out by Kinross Mining Corporation. Now all gold that is mined will be melted down and poured into bullion - what gold specimens remain are quickly being hoarded by collectors and investors. The gold I have for sale on the website is mostly from my private collection. There will be no more gold coming from Round Mountain unless Kinross changes it's mind regarding preserving these rare treasures.
