A brilliant gold color and intricate crystal gold formation on this delicate little gold specimen from the famous Sixteen to One mine in the Sierra Mining District of California. This piece came from a collection I recently acquired. The 16 to 1 mine was a bell weather mine during the California gold rush and is one of the few still producing in California. This is a fantastic piece of gold from this historic gold mine.
