Meekatharra, Cue, Western Australia, Australia
Beautiful pair of gold crystals sitting perfectly on white quartz matrix. The upper crystal has the appearance of a flattened spinel twin, while the lower crystal has very sharp and lustrous faces, indicating that it is a partial octahedron. This is quite an aesthetic pair of crystals classic for this locality which is one of the few in Australia where gold actually crystallizes nicely.
