A delicate formation of leaf-like Native Gold crystals makes up this small thumbnail piece. These crystals do not exceed 0.1" (4 mm) in length but are in excellent condition. Though most are flattened and somewhat warped, one can still see some crystalline outline to some of them. They have the classic gold coloration and bright metallic luster of their species. There is no host rock present, and the piece is affixed on a small post inside a plastic thumbnail box.
