'One of my better gold crystals from this location. A very clean yellow gold color and magnificent clusters of crystalized gold with a branching form. The Artru Gold Mine is located in Mariposa County at the southern most part of the Mother Load Gold belt in California. 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.'
