ID: CC17322
A thin plate of creamy-grey Quartz, covered with micro Quartz crystals, is richly coated with beautiful arborescent growths of crystallised Native Gold to 2 cm long, lying flat across the matrix’s surface.  From the classic Romanian locality at Roşia Montanã in Alba County, the Gold is a rich brassy colour with robust individual thick crystals intergrown to form the branch-like fronds.  As is so often the case with Native Gold, the structures and crystal habits are even more spectacular when studied through a low magnification loop or hand lens.  The specimen comes with an “F.H. Butler, late Talling, Mineralogist” label and is from a nineteenth-century British collection.  A historic and splendid crystallised Native Gold from Roşia Montanã in Romania.
