Gold ore from the southern part of the Kitakami Mountains, Michinoku gold, is characterized by the fact that many grains can be seen by the naked eye, some of which can be spotted easily in the piece pictured here. It can be said that the reason why operations like gold dust collection spread so widely is as a result of this property.
