Universally loved, gold has ignited the desire of mankind for millennia.

In its natural state, it is typically found in shapeless nuggets or tiny flakes. In the rare gold-bearing deposits with a significant amount of carbonate, gold is able to crystallize, taking on geometry and dimension.

As a beautiful and rare occurrence, crystallized gold is highly collectible. This striking specimen features an impressive amalgamation of crystals displaying skeletal, dendritic, and octahedral structures. They have distinct faces, sharp terminations, and overall excellent dimensionality. They’ve clustered together in an arborous formation that is sculptural and interpretive.

Additionally, the crystals boast excellent luster and a bright yellow coloring that is indicative of a higher gold content. With its complex crystallization and natural presence, this specimen would make a timeless addition to any fine mineral collection.
