The Alta Floresta District, located in the remote Mato Grosso region of Brazil, has become famous to collectors over the past several years for the world-class crystallized gold specimens it has produced. A major find several years ago produced multiple kilograms of superb deeply hoppered and twinned gold crystals, but it appears the locality, made up mainly of shallow alluvial workings, may now be exhausted. This is an outstanding 2 cm tall modified cuboctahedal Gold crystal, with very well-defined ribbing and a rich golden-yellow luster. This is a highly-exceptional single hoppered crystal for the find, and can compete with the best large hoppered gold crystals from other world-class locales such as southern Venezuela. Weighs 13 grams. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
