A great little specimen of Native Gold in a box with a magnifying lid. The gold is perched on top of the quartz matrix. It’s a really nice little crystal and great example of native gold in quartz. Gold is a noble metal and a native metal. The former for it’s resistance to corrosion and the latter as it has a single element, symbol Au. Gold and humans go way back, for better and for worse. A cute little specimen like this would grace any collection. Another beaut Aussie rock!
The box measures 2.5cm on each side.
