Ex. Paulo Matioli
Visible gold from this classic local! A dolomitic matrix with pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite hosts a white quartz vein, with minor siderite, within which a 1.5mm, well-formed gold crystal resides in a vug with euhedral quartz and dolomite-siderite crystals accompanied by a vibrant, orange-red scheelite crystal. Great association specimen and nice gold crystal for Morro Velho. Ex. Paulo Matioli collection.
