Brilliant Natural Wire Gold Cluster - Olinghouse Gold Mine

Brilliant Natural Wire Gold Cluster - Olinghouse Gold Mine

$169.00
A great example of the wire gold that put the Olinghouse Gold Mine on the map for serious gold collectors. A very intricate wire gold cluster with the backside having some inclusions of clay. Some of the gold specimens that were found here did not grow in quartz but grew in a rare clay matrix.
The Olinghouse Gold Mine in Washoe County is world famous for the unique and intricate wire gold specimens that were found there during its time in operation. The Mine has been closed for nearly twenty years and the specimens I have from this location come from the previous mine manager.
