The Proctor's nickname for this superb gold thumbnail from Venezuela's Zapata claims was the "little bird" and you can easily see why there were captivated by the artistic form and aesthetics of this very fine piece. The specimen is made up of very sharp elongated spinel-twinned gold crystals, and the Proctors remarked in their book that this specimen looked "almost hand-carved to perfection." We couldn't disagree! Weighs 5.1 grams. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
