The Zapata goldfields of southern Venezuela are known for their superb, often complexly-twinned gold crystal specimens. This is an outstanding 2.6 cm wide example composed of beautifully-branching spinel twinned gold crystals forming a very elegant grouping without matrix. The luster and crystal definition are exceptional for the locality, and for crystallized gold in general. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection. Joaquin Callen photo.
