This wonderful, elongated gold specimen is apparently spinel twinned with hopper growth. It exhibits classic Venezuelan habits. This exquisite crystal is a HUGE gold crystal, to be so sharp. Most of this size are severely deformed, even from this prolific locality. This one is elegant and sharp as heck. A killer specimen for people who like crystals for their quality as opposed to weight. It displays magnificently, with a nice golden-toned patina, and frankly I like it either side up... personal choice, there.
