ID: CC1170
Very bright metallic yellow veins of Native Gold cut through a white veinstone Quartz, forming raised platy ridges above the Quartz.  The white Quartz matrix also has areas of black acicular micro-crystals which look like Tourmaline, with associated Pyrite.  The specimen is from the interestingly named 16 to 1 Mine in California, USA, a former Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn lode discovered in 1896.  The Native Gold richly pervades the Quartz, occurring as hackly twisting sheets and sharp angular grains.  A terrific miniature of Native Gold in milky Quartz from this seldom seen location in California.
