Gold, Olinghouse Mine, Washoe Co., Nevada
Whoa! These are NICE specimens!!! The gold at the Olinghouse Mine occurs in calcite/zeolite veins. When the calcite is etched out with acid, beautiful crystals of gold are left in the opening vacated by the calcite. I have examined all of these specimens carefully and feel that they are robust enough to ship. Sometimes they are just too delicate to ship by post. I have some "killer" specimens that cannot be shipped and if you are ever in the Toronto area and want to purchase one that you can transport back home yourself, I have a couple! Come and visit. These ones are all shippable.
