'An impressive and large leaf gold specimen with a slightly wavy form and a brilliant surface with clusters of trigons mixed with a wavy herringbone pattern. I was able to purchase this piece as well as a small handful of others from an undisclosed small mine in Mariposa. California. The pieces resemble those found at Round Mountain in Nevada, but it is in fact from Mariposa. There is a few small inclusions of white quartz that show how the crystal grew on the wall of the pocket deep inside the mine.'
