Cut and polished slab of gold-in-quartz ore from Goldfield, Esmeralda County, Nevada. 1.625 x 1.375 x 0.375 inches, 29.7 grams. At the turn of the 20th century, Goldfield became a boomtown, producing in excess of $86 million from numerous mines around the city. A few short years after being established in 1902, Goldfield grew to around 20,000 people, making it the largest town in Nevada at the time. Wyatt and Virgil Earp arrived in 1904, and Virgil became a deputy sheriff. When Virgil died of pneumonia in 1905, Wyatt left town to pursue mining claims elsewhere in the Western US.
