GOLD is a native element and precious metal.

Gold belongs to the Isometric crystal system. Hardness is 2.5 – 3 on the Mohs scale.
Location: Little Jonny (Ibex #1) Mine, Breece Hill, Leadville, Lake County, Colorado, USA
The Little Jonny Mine began operations in 1883 but did not amount to much until it was purchased by John F. “Leadville Jonny” Campion in 1890 and consolidated into his Ibex property. In its heyday, the Little Jonny was called the richest gold mine in America. Campion later founded the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and the precursor to the Denver Art Museum.
