ML00516 - Gold
Eagles Nest Mine, Placer County, California, USA
miniature - 3.2 x 3.1 x 2.2 cm
$ 1500.00

A bright yellow crystalline leaf typical of one of California’s best specimen gold producers. While golds from this locality usually need to be etched from their host quartz veins, this specimen exhibits no evidence of such a treatment, and therefore likely grew at least partially into open space. ⁣⁣

ML00595 - Gold with Galena & Pyrrhotite
980' Level, Kensington Mine, Berners Bay, Alaska, USA
miniature - 4.8 x 4.7 x 3.4 cm
$ 500.00

The original Kensington Mine ceased operations in 1928. The mine is now currently in production having secured permits for operations in 2005. This specimen was collected in April of 1993, presumably by someone doing exploration in the area. I visited the mine site in 1987, and collected samples at the surface that ran 2 oz/ton, but never saw any visible gold. In fact, this is the only visible gold specimen I have ever seen available from the mine.

$ 100.00 DISCOUNTED 35.00% OFF TO $ 65.00

Normally I don't get to excited about an apophyllite from India, however this piece must have been one of the earlier specimens to reach the US market. It was at one time sold by Schortmann's, has been in the Karabachic Collection, and also the Art Montgomergy Collection.
