A GOLDEN set of 15 rich yellow gold crystals and nuggets from an uncommon Venezuela locality and the Steve Smale Collection. Some of the crystals are hoppered/skeletal and there is an amazing array of sculptural shapes. The largest crystal looks just like a dog and one crystal has an exquisite leaf shape with a stem. Every one of these mostly flattened pieces is unique and different. 25 grams or just over 0.8 of 1 troy ounce.
