'The pictures say it all with this one. A beautiful yellow shiny gold and fantastic form with well defined crystals and branching form with several trigon gold crystals terminating at the end. A magnificent and rare piece of gold from California. The Artru Gold Mine is located in Mariposa County at the southern most part of the Mother Load Gold belt in California. The mine has long been closed to any underground workings, but a single prospector was allowed to work the surface with a backhoe excavator and a metal detector to uncover these crystalized gold specimens. I have a small handful of these available and when they are gone, I doubt I will ever see any more gold from this location.'
