    Finding GOLD

    This piece was misplaced after last years Sonora Gold Show

    Thankfully it showed up nearly a year later neatly packed away.

    Excellent specimen Oak! If that had gone missing on me I'd have been tearing up everything to find it!

    Awesome specimen!

    Reminds me of the gold veined quartz crystal lump I found on Lake Superior as a child. It was made into a 3-3 1/2" gazing ball after I sold it. Wish I'd kept it!

    It was packed in a different box than what it arrived in, so as to protect it, fragile. All the boxes were supposedely checked, apparently one was not :-)
