Gold, Pyrite
Thumbnail, 2.3 x 2.2 x 1.6 cm
Nugget Pond Mine, Betts Cove, Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
An unusual and fine showy gold thumbnail from the unique 1990s Newfoundland find, at St. Johns. Bright, microcrystalline gold is aesthetically perched atop the unique, pink granitic quartz and feldspar crystals. A thin band of black, host rock matrix and bright pyrite is an excellent compliment.
