Item Description

This specimen consists of a solid cluster of intergrown sharp crystals, termed trigons in form. They are thrown out from an underlaying leaf gold "platform" which ends in a ridge of hoppered octahedrons. The octahedrons are sharp and 3-dimensional, and the specimen weighs 3.6g. For the size, this is an exquisite Round mountain gold specimen from the now famous finds of around 2007-2008. Valued $1000-1500 easily, this is NOT a common quality, but rather is quite exceptional - and better in person.
