ID: CC8456
A delightful specimen of beautifully crystallised Native Gold on and in a matrix of pinkish-cream Calcite from the rare element enriched veins at Hope’s Nose, just east of the coastal resort of Torquay in Devon.  The Gold on this specimen has two habits and is of two types.  The much purer Gold is a buttery yellow and forms a 1.5 x 0.3 cm array of intergrown herringbone crystals.  Scattered over the remaining Calcite surface are numerous chains and rod-like structures of a much paler Native Gold, an indication that it is the Palladium-rich variety.  A lovely and interesting specimen of Hope’s Nose Gold and a true modern classic.
