From one of the most celebrated gold mines in California comes this brilliant trigon gold cluster specimen. A very intricate gold specimen with one side being a very defined grouping of sharp and faceted trigon gold crystals with some of them being hollowed. The opposite side is a very wavy dendritic herringbone formation. A flawless gold specimen and a recent find from a pocket in the mine. The Colorado Quartz Mine in Mariposa County, California has arguably produced the worlds finest gold specimens. Most notably was a specimen called "The Dragon" found in 1998 by John Emmett.
