Gold with quartz
A killer miniature from this hard-to-get locale! Great Red Ledge specimens are scarce now. They used to come to market up until the 1980s or so. Some say they have the best lustre of any US gold specimens, and this one certainly illustrates the point in person. This one features both crystals and leaves, arranged elegantly around a core of quartz . It is of superior quality.
