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 complexly-formed gold crystals, but it appears the locality, made up mainly of shallow alluvial workings, may now be exhausted. This is an outstanding 3 cm tall group of very well-defined hoppered Gold crystals with a rich golden-yellow luster. This is an exceptional specimen for the find, and can compete with famous gold crystals from other world-class locales such as southern Venezuela. Weighs 20 grams. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
