Gold & Quartz - Brusson, Italy

Native Gold on Quartz from the well-known Brusson locality. The gold itself looks much better in real. The interesting thing with this specimen is that it was not altered with acid, like most of the other specimens on the market. The typical gneiss is still visible aside the quartz matrix. The mine is located in the north-western alps of Italy in Val d’Ayas. Several old gold mines can be found in the Brusson area. These mines have been used since Roman empire but are now forbidden.
