Crystalline native gold on quartz matrix

This is one of the largest Belshazzar Gold specimens that I've seen at the shows. It contains over 22 ounces of Native Gold, visible on all sides of this cabinet sized specimen! The Gold consists of fine crystals and wires...

From the Belshazzar Mine, Quartzburg District, Boise County, Idaho.
Measures 12 cm by 7.2 cm by 6 cm.
A showpiece from the Tucson Show 2013.  This specimen sold for $55,000.  For the rockhound or any lover of natural beauty, there are some truly awesome photographs at the link.
