Native Gold

$3,500.00   €3,219  £2,680.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC11449
An attractive mix of leaf and arborescent, pale metallic golden Native Gold is concentrated in an area of 2.5 x 2.0 cm on a contrasting siliceous light to mid grey matrix from Transylvania in Romania. It is highly probable this specimen is from the gold deposits at Roşia Montană in Alba County; Alba being in the historical region of Transylvania. With good eyesight or using a x5 loupe, triangular crystalline growth patterns cover the surfaces of all the leaf Gold. An old Butler (late Talling) label comes with the specimen with a price of 15/- (15 shillings) written on. Sadly, the left hand section of this label is missing, but a lot of information can still be gleaned.
