The tiny headland of Hope’s Nose in the Wellswood district of Torquay, Devon, became famous worldwide following the discovery of dendritic crystallised Native Gold within Calcite veins crossing the wave-cut platform.  This charming large thumbnail is a plate of pinkish cream Calcite, both sides of which have fine arborescent dendrites of buttery-rich metallic golden Native Gold forming linked sprays to 1.5 cm long.  The Native Gold is readily visible, but under low (say, x5) magnification, the exquisite crystallised forms of the Native Gold are revealed in detail.
