Very small and delicate in nature. A nice pair. 0.8 cm long. Lode mining in the Michigan Bluff District began shortly after the discovery of gold in California but was never as important as the alluvial deposits. The site of the original discovery of gold at Coloma in El Dorado County is less than 20 miles from the Eagle's Nest mine. During the California gold rush, Michigan Bluff was a booming town of several thousand citizens. It was originally settled by immigrants from the State of Michigan and was simply called "Michigan" until the town was physically moved to a higher bluff when gold was discovered beneath the townsite. It is now better known as the town where Leland Stanford started his career as a lowly store merchant in 1853. Eagles Nest has been consistent source of fine crystallized gold specimens, with the exception of recent years during which legal challenges have limited access to the area.
