Native Gold with Tellurobismuthite

ID: CC21538
The combination of Native Gold with Tellurobismuthite is a Welsh classic and this fine cabinet specimen is from Clogau St Davids mine at Bontddu in the Dolgellau Gold Belt of Gwynedd.  This famous gold mine is north-west of Dolgellau and north-east of Barmouth.  The mine exploited six gold bearing veins traversing Clogau mountain, although it originally began as a copper mine.  The gold mining period lasted from 1862 until 1911.  This specimen clearly displays a 4 cm wide band of opaque milky Quartz veinstone bounded by black Clogau shale and within the Quartz are many grains and hackly flakes of buttery yellow Native Gold and metallic silver Tellurobismuthite.
