Native Gold on Quartz

ID: CC19258
An extremely rich specimen of Native Gold on milky Quartz from an unprovenanced locality in Nevada, USA.  The Gold is a buttery-yellow indicating high purity and forms broad sheets, partly embedded throughout the matrix, but extending out as thin hackly-edged sheets and semi-arborescent clusters.  Under low magnification many sheets are seen to be covered in micro-crystallised Gold occurring as triangular contact twins.  A choice Native Gold from Nevada.
