JC8903.  Quartz, goethite, microcline.  Pikes Peak (batholith?), El Paso county, Colorado.  9 x 9 cm  520g.  $100.00.  This is an oldie, originally in Mihelcic collection and then Mike Grobin collection or vice verse;  Label has it as Pikes Peak, and it is just enough different, that the label is probably accurate.  An odd looking quartz crystal group with goethite sprays growing on it.  Looks different from anything I've collected in the Crystal Creek area where most of this type of specimen comes from these days.
