ID: CC7819
A choice thumbnail of crystalline Native Gold on white Quartz veinstone from the Eagle's Nest mine in California, USA.  A well-developed triangular crystal of Native Gold of tabular habit measures to 1 cm and sits sub-vertically on a base of leaf Native Gold.  The metal is a bright yellow gold indicating its high Gold content because it is normal for Gold to be alloyed with Silver (or other similar metals) and so dulling its intensity of colour as the alloy becomes increasingly Silver rich.  Close observation of the Native Gold crystal reveals crystalline detail on opposite faces, mainly in the form of repeated geometric triangular growth patterns.  This is a fine crystal of Native Gold from the Eagle's Nest mine.
