ID: CC10513
A milky Quartz veinstone matrix is encrusted on its top surface with intermixed black Sphalerite crystals to 4 mm and milky-white Calcite crystals to 1 mm, with a frosting of micro-crystals of Pyrite and Chalcopyrite.  Amongst this background sits a 6 x 4 mm thin curved plate of Native Gold.  This is of a rich buttery-yellow gold and is composed of micro-arborescent crystals in classic “fishbone”-type structure.  A good representative example from the epithermal precious metal vein deposits at Banská Štiavnica (Schemnitz) in the Banská Bystrica Region of Slovakia.
