A brilliant gold color and very shiny specimen from Round Mountain, Nevada. Great striation pattern on several areas. Round Mountain gold is no longer available from the mine. Since Kinross purchased the full mine in 2016, they have elected to not sell any specimen gold and are putting corporate profits above protecting these rare earth treasures. Sadly, all the gold that now comes from Round Mountain is melted into bullion and they have said it's too time consuming to sort and sell the finer gold specimens.
