BRAZILIAN GOLD!!!!  A wondrous specimen of crystallized Gold from the Amazonian jungles of the Alta Floresta Gold province, Brazil.  Specimen exhibits a beautifully developed octahedral Gold crystal within a cluster of other weakly crystallized Gold forms.  This piece was mined from either alluvial sources, or from deeply weathered bedrock ..known as Saprolite. There is distinct wear on the specimen indicating movement through time. Gold shows a buttery  yellow color and brilliant luster. This specimen is a relatively new showing although the actual mines are quite old. Weighs .309 oz.
