Wow! This magnificent specimen is reputed to be one of the best examples of octahedral gold crystals ever recovered at the famous Round Mountain mine in Nye County Nevada, and looking at it, it's easy to see why this is. The quality of the crystals is absolutely world-class, and measuring almost 10 cm tall, it is a stunning cabinet-size example of crystallized gold. The crystals are primarily octahedral but include some spinel-twins, and all individual crystals show a preferred orientation that produce a mesmerizing macroscopic symmetry when viewed from a distance. Up close, the crystals are equally amazing, showing a "fractal geometry" from large to very small but similar gold crystals. Very few localities in the world have ever produced gold specimens of this quality, and this investment-quality specimen is a stellar representation of a very brief period when a small number of specimens of this quality were being found. This specimen would be a cornerstone of any collection, and is worthy of serious consideration. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
