About this piece: A true golden leaf! Very nice piece that has lots of flashy mirror surfaces along with fantastic shape, incredible color and configuration makes it a top notch specimen.

Crystalline gold is very delicate and hard to extract due to very costly mining expenses. Crystalline gold is usually embedded in quartz and other minerals and can cost, as much as, five times the price of nuggets. Some of the other minerals include: silver, pyrite and lead. The gold varies in color from deep yellow to orange and red. These samples and nuggets are not sold by weight, but by size and uniqueness of the specimen.

Origin:
Some 4 million years ago, gold was pushed up through the earth's crust to this and many other locations. However, at this particular spot, thermo steam at over 4000 degrees F. also came up, forcing crystallized gold into the quartz rock. Blowing apart the quartz, yields one of nature's rarest forms of gold -- crystalline gold. To a collector, it can be worth as much as $3000 dollars or more an ounce.
