Red Ledge Mine, Washington, Washington District, Nevada Co., California, USA

This crystallized gold specimen was discovered in the Butterfly adit around 1955. The size is approximately 6 inches long, weight is about 10 oz. Please note, my folks took very few photos of their gold. It was a rare specimen that got its picture taken, and usually only when my Mom saw a common shape she recognized. She called this piece the "Seahorse", and it was photographed by our neighbor who had a nicer camera.
