Description
'A beautiful gold crystal specimen with sharp and defined gold crystals and a unique form that tapers to a sharp point. The color is fantastic and the gold is very pure. The Artru Gold Mine is located in Mariposa County at the southern most part of the Mother Load Gold belt in California. The mine has long been closed to any underground workings, but a single prospector was allowed to work the surface with a backhoe excavator and a metal detector to uncover these crystalized gold specimens. I have a small handful of these available and when they are gone, I doubt I will ever see any more gold from this location.'
