Here is a gorgeous gold crystal floater. It was found in the last year in the jungles of Venezuela. Well crystallized gold from here is quite pure. It's 100% natural, when it was found it was caked in Kaolin clay (I did the cleaning myself). It has a bright lustre and branching crystals in many directions. Both sides are pictured. 

It weighs 1.8 grams.

This is an especially unique example of crystallized gold from the jungles of Venezuela. It is known to have over a 1% content of Paladium which creates the dramatic dendritic-like structure. It's sheen is slightly different (slightly more platinum hued) from other golds found in the area. The specimen has two primary crystal growths, both of which are flat by nature. They join at the base at a 90 degree angle, but each flat plane of crystallization is also "twisted," 90 degrees to the other. It is an aesthetic example with dynamic habits. It weighs 3.4 grams.

This is a huge, rare piece of crystallized gold from Venezuela. It was found in the last year in the jungles of Venezuela. Well crystallized gold from here is quite pure. It's 100% natural, when it was found it was caked in Kaolin clay (I did the cleaning myself). It has a beautiful hoppered crystal pattern, and amazingly resembles the head of an Anachonda! I included a few pics of the "King of the jungle," to better illustrate the uncanny resemblance. It weighs a substantial 18.3 grams! It has a wonderful bright luster, and is so heavy it feels like a heavy caliber bullet in your hand. It crystallized while resting against a host rock, and the bottom shows a flatter contact area.

It was found in the last year in the jungles of Venezuela. Well crystallized gold from here is quite pure. It's 100% natural, when it was found it was caked in Kaolin clay (I did the cleaning myself). Yes this gold crystal seems to have two sets of eyes, as well as resemble a human ear, when placed on its side! It weighs a hefty 6.93 grams, so it feels like a solid nugget, although it clearly displays the skeletal crystallization that makes Venezuelan gold so unique.

thumbnail - 2.4 x 1.2 x 1.2

This fine example of crystallized gold was found in the jungles of Venezuela, near Santa Elena. Well crystallized gold from here is quite pure. It's 100% natural, when it was found it was caked in Kaolin clay (I did the cleaning myself). It weighs a substantial 13.30 grams. It is completely crystallized, and upon inspection the piece demonstrates orientation relative to the finer crystals which had enough space in the vein to crystallize in a finer way. Some of these finer crystals exhibit Tetrahexahedron crystallization (the model is a six-side cube where each face has a four sided pyramidal termination.) habits. The images "gold6b.jpg," and "gold6f.jpg," shows some of the sharp crystal faces that are apparent. This was one of the most substantial piece brought out at the end of the summer of 2010 digging season.
