A very showy, arborescent gold specimen, beautiful from either side. The gold cluster is composed of innnumerable intergrown crystals of several forms, tightly woven together to create a sturdy "tree" on matrix. The specimen is a very choice example for the size and price range, and would be a dramatic presence in any collection.
