Mina Zapata, Santa Elena de Uairen, Bolivar, Venezuela
An aesthetic and sculptural, rich golden-yellow, set of two leaf-like and one super-skeletal gold crystals from an uncommon Venezuela locality and the Steve Smale Collection. The bullet-shaped, skeletal/hoppered crystal is stunning. The flattened crystal on the left looks like a stylized sailboat and the crystal on the right looks like two leaves or flower petals. Weighs 29.64 carats or 5.93 grams.
