Rich leafy plates of bright metallic yellow Native Gold are scattered along the top surface of a rusty brown Limonitic Quartz matrix.  This cabinet specimen is from the Nueva Esperanza vein at Capillitas mine in the Andalgal√° Department of Argentina.  This is a rare location, this being the first time we have seen specimens from the mine.  The largest group of inter-connected leaves measures 1.3 cm long.  The Native Gold forms bright metallic leaves with hackly edges with micro-triangular Gold crystals distributed over the plates.  A fine and rare example of Native Gold from the Nueva Esperanza Vein.  The specimen is accompanied with two earlier labels.
