Native Gold (OMS11-b)



Native California gold from the Oriental Mine.

Don Dickey mined the Oriental Mine for more than 50 years. The mine was previously worked by his mother before World War II. Over that time, he ‘stockpiled’ all of the rich specimen pieces. After his death in 2015, we were contacted to help sort through all the gold he had recovered. We found specimens under floor boards, in closets, in safes, and even in the rafters at the mine office! This thumbnail specimen was part of a truly incredible find, and this is a unique opportunity to obtain a historical gold specimen.
