This tiny thumbnail piece consists of a small chunk of white quartz through which extend a few small veins of native Gold. The Gold is in good condition and shows no visible crystal form. It has the standard golden-yellow coloration and bright metallic luster. The piece is hot-glued to a small wooden post which is in turn affixed to a square acrylic base. This base fits inside the bottom of a standard thumbnail box, which is included.
