A striking and beautiful, brilliant, whitish-yellow gold leaf or feather with distinctively different crystal form on each side. The "A" side is comprised of a mesmerizing, multitude of flattened crystals with triangular octahedral faces in a herringbone pattern. The "B" side is hackly microcrystals. This leaf is from the Dixie Mine of the Idaho Springs District, Colorado.
