The Alta Floresta district in Brazil's remote Mato Grosso region has become famous overnight to collectors of fine minerals for it's world-class crystallized gold specimens that started coming out a few years ago. Most gold crystals from Alta Floresta show highly modified and hoppered to skeletal octahedral forms, but occasionally much rarer dodecahedra and octahedra are found. This is a superb example of two six-sided cubo-octahedral crystals which form an aesthetic cluster. An outstanding thumbnail-sized gold for this important new locale, and a great example of this rare crystal form. Weighs 6.7 grams. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
