Rare Gold and Arsenopyrite - Oriental Gold Mine, CA

  • Model: MB420


A beautiful natural gold and arsenopyrite specimen. When miners discover large amounts or "shelves" of arsenopyrite when blasting and tunneling, there is a good chance that large amounts of gold are nearby. This was the case with the Oriental Mine in the Allegheny Mining District of California. Most of the gold there was not mixed with the pyrite but some most certainly was. I was able to acquire a few handfuls of these unique gold specimens. They were mined by the longtime owner Don Dickey and held in his collection for decades before finally being available on the open market.

Weight: 2.06 grams ( 31.80 grains)
Dimensions: 5/8" or 15mm
