Thumbnail, 2.0 x 1.0 x 0.5 cm
Papua New Guinea
Ex. Bill Forrest

An oustanding thumbnail of world class competition quality. This is from the collection of Bill Forrest, owner of the Benitoite Mine. He obtained this personally some 2 decades ago when buying a group of gold crystals in New Guinea. He says this was the single best piece in the lot, and I believe it! The sharp symmetry of the piece is fascinating and beautiful, and of a fine filligree that makes it stand out from any California material. It is truly one of the best gold thumbnails for this style of crystallization that I have seen. (not from the Mauthner Collection)
