Native Gold

ID: CC3647
A very pleasing aesthetic and rare miniature specimen of Native Gold from the IcabarĂº area of Bolivar in Venezuela. Prismatic habit, wire-like crystals of Native Gold are very well formed in spiky arborescent branches measuring to 2.7 cm, making an overall dendritic V-like formation with all crystals having a hackly texture. One edge of the specimen has a superb complex herringbone structure. The colour is a slightly buttery-yellow gold, indicating high gold purity, because, often in nature gold forms a natural alloy with adjacent metals in the periodic table. The Native Gold deposits at IcabarĂº are found in river placers, although this specimen was amongst a limited find. An outstanding Native Gold in beautiful, crystallised form from Venezuela.
