Minerals 2

 In an online auction conducted by a prominent mineral dealer, the diamond in conglomerate offered there was purchased for a winning bid of $1,260.00, after being bid on 44 times. So what would a Diamond and GOLD in conglomerate have gone for? 

This 7 x 7.3 x 9 cm specimen contains not only a clear, natural, modified octohedral diamond measuring 5 x 5 mm, but also a 5 x 3 cm crystalline nugget of gold. The Gold is quite bright for all it has been through and like the diamond, stands out very well from the matrix. Although the Gold crystal and the Diamond crystal are on opposite sides of the specimen, you can easily orientate the specimen so that both crystals can be seen on the specimen at the same time.
