ID: CC7299
An excellent and fabulously rich small cabinet specimen of Native Gold from Nevada, USA.  Sheets of leaf Native Gold almost entirely cover a thin 6.5 x 5.0 cm plate of creamy white Quartz matrix. Many of the sheets attain approximately 2 cm in length forming a continuous coverage of Native Gold, with a texture of crisp golden dried autumn leaves.  The lustre of the sheets varies from bright lustrous golden metallic to frosted buttery-yellow with a matt finish.  Under magnification (say, x5) the leaf surfaces have minute crystal growth developments in the form of multiple arrays of equilateral triangles, it is quite spectacular when studied closely.  This is a rich and aesthetic specimen from Nevada, and one packed with crystallographic interest.
