Description

Gold ore specimen hosting several small gold specks frozen in quartz, associated with silvery galena.

Schellgaden is an ancient gold mining area, worked intermittently from 1354 until around 1900. The deposits are hosted by highly metamorphous quartzites, micaschists and amphibolites. Gold and silver were associated to sulphidic ores which formed layers in quartz. They did occur both freely crystallized and as inclusions in sulphides. A rare alpine locality specimen from austria.
