Exquisite specimen featuring the most brilliant leaves of Native Gold in white Calcite!
This specimen is incredibly lustrous and bright, with fine Native leaf Gold covering both the front and back sides on the white Calcite matrix. The leaves are firmly embedded in the Calcite and rigidly stable with some tiny trigons scattered about atop the surfaces. This is the first specimen I've seen from this locality and I am very impressed with both the color and intense brilliance.
