Gold / Locality - Little Johnnie Mine (Ibex Mine), Leadville, Lake County, Colorado


Shipping to United States: Free

Gold specimens from Leadville are not common on the market, and typically are snatched up immediately by collectors when they are made available. Recently, a local digger discovered a small amount of crystallized Gold specimens on the dumps of the Little Johnnie Mine, and this piece is one of said specimens. The piece features beautiful, metallic, brightly colored "leaves" of Gold which are intergrown to form a unique and unusual, foliated "flower petal"-like formation. I have seen many Golds from Leadville over the years, and this one really stands out because of the unusual form. The piece is actually crystallized (!), and I have photographed the Gold under the microscope to better show the detail. A great Gold specimen from this historic and classic Colorado locality.
