This is a rare raw gold ore cabochon wrapped in .925 silver wire. This statement pendant is approximately 1 inch long and the cabochon weighs in at 25 carats (5 grams). Gold content is approximately 15 carats (3 grams).
One of a kind!
A statement from the miner of this cabochon, Lela Braunberger (star of The TV show Antero Treasures): Far as that new peice goes, I mined it from a historic gold and gem mine owned by my husband and I , it's patented minerals under ground claimed surface, the mine is originally started from 1800's and was manned by one hundred men, it's a Bonanza mine. And it was mined in pre war times and also last mined 1942 and never mined again until I re opened it up dug it by using hand tools.
Men lost their lives over that haunted mine even. It's a well known mine in Colorado.
