This small thumbnail piece consists of a cluster of flattened Gold crystals. The crystals are in good condition, showing no obvious damage, and have a visible, if flattened, isometric form- one crystal even shows a small amount of hoppering! The Gold has the standard golden-yellow color and bright metallic luster and is loose- no host rock is present. The piece is hot-glued to a square acrylic base which in turn fits into a plastic specimen box.
