Great color and a sharp rectangular shape on this gold crystal specimen from the Famous Round Mountain gold mine. The gold from Round Mountain is coveted and hoarded by collectors around the world. The mine was fully bought out in 2016 and closed their gold specimen preservation program claiming it was too expensive to continue taking the time to carefully excavate and preserve the gold pockets. All the gold is now melted down into bullion.
