Fine California Crystalline Gold Specimen
Forrest Hill, Placer County, California
Forest Hill is located on the on a gravel bed of the ancient American River. It was the center of the gold rush in the spring of 1850 when miners began to arrive in large numbers. It later became the site of the Jenny Lind Mine which produced about $2,500 of gold a day during the 1860s and nearly $1 million by 1880. The present exceedingly fine specimen of gold is resplendent with well-defined crystallization. Very minor traces of quartz are present at the base. A fine choice for the serious collector of California gold.
