Dazzling and curving, this hoppered gold crystal is super attractive, and the small cluster of spinel twin crystals at the base give it a very floral feel. Excellent luster. Just over 4 grams, but the vertical height and surface area make it look double that mass. This is an iconic and outstanding, competitive level thumbnail specimen of a special quality, to my eyes.
