One of the most aesthetically-striking styles of crystallized gold from Nevada's Round Mountain Mine are these delicate, intricate "herringbone" groups of elongated crystals, of which this specimen is a top-notch example. Measuring 3 cm tall but only a few mm thick, this specimen is best displayed in a protective box or "riker mount" style display. When displayed this way, however (such as in this image by Joaquin Callen), the aesthetics are stunning, and the amazing detail of the crystals can be fully appreciated. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
