Thumbnail, 2.6 x 2.2 x 1.2 cm
Alta Floresta, Mato Grasso, Brazil

A superb example of this now-infamous find, from approx. 2005. This specimen went directly to the Ed David collection, at the time. It is a superior example and perhaps the best of the thumbnail-sized examples from this find. It is thought that only a few dozens of good thumbnails were recovered, and only a handful of larger specimens. At the time, there was a lot of "interest" in the gold, and miners flocked to the site. Today, the find remains unique and specimens are hard to obtain. Complete all around, this is a 3-dimensional and robust specimen!
