Description

Rare gold specimen from the Discovery Mine, Canada. A pale quartzite schist speck is fully lined with lustrous gold leaves and flakes that populate a pretty large portion of the specimen.

It has not been treated in any strong solvent, therefore quartz is not leached and it shows its natural state, with iron oxide stains.

Yellowknife golds are very rare on the market.  
An acquisition dated back to the Denver show 2018 - a good specimen from this find!
