Wow! Even by the high standards of the Round Mountain mine, now firmly-established as one of the world's premier locales for crystallized gold, this is a world-class gold specimen. Measuring 5 cm wide, this specimen is entirely composed of incredibly detailed and sharp gold crystals, which show cubic, oxctahedral, and spinel-twinned forms, all combined is elongated "Christmas tree" style branching groups of crystals. The overall visual effect is stunning, and the bright luster and buttery yellow color make this specimen a marvel to behold. Very few crystallized gold specimens of this quality were ever found at Round Mountain, which is now essentially defunct as far as future specimen production goes. A premier-quality gold specimen worthy of serious consideration. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection; Joaquin Callen photo.
