Description

You are bidding on a small and very rich native gold sample from this classic locality. The specimen is loaded with native gold, and the underside is almost solid gold, but the star here is the perfect, sharp, single dodecahedral gold crystal sitting on quartz on the top of the specimen. I don't think I've ever offered such a sharp and photogenic crystallized gold specimen before. There are also several other clusters and single crystals on the specimen. Simpy stunning!
