Dramatic specimen of crystalline Native Gold with Quartz matrix!

 This is one of the most artistic specimens of Native Gold that I've ever offered on the website! It's completely crystalline, with crystal surfaces that range from intensely lustrous to a mirror-like reflectivity. Entended leaves flow outwards from the left side, displaying dendritic growth atop the surfaces. The bottom portion of the Native Gold is accented by stark white Quartz matrix, providing the specimen with a beautiful contrast. When I look at the specimen, I see the image of a tree blowing in the wind. This specimen not only has eye appeal and beauty but it also has enough flash and luster for a dozen specimens.
