Item number: 18696

This beautiful specimen from the Olinghouse mine shows an exposed vein of gold that has had the calcite etched away to reveal sparkling, interlocking gold crystals. The crystals are a combination of spiky, dendritic crystals and flattened, presumably, spinel-law twinned crystals. Gorgeous!! Displays very well from a couple of directions.
