The Zapata claims, located in Southern Venezuela's Bolivar state in a remote region of the Amazon Basin, are world-renowned for their superb gold crystals. Probably the rarest and most desirable gold crystals from Venezuela are the complexly-hoppered skeletal octahedra and dodecahedral forms. This is a world-class thumbnail featuring very sharp, highly-modified dodecahedral faces. Gram for gram, this is one of the finest Venezuelan gold crystals I have seen. The crystal is perfect and complete all around and can be displayed from multiple angles. This perfection and complexity of crystallization in Venezuelan gold (or gold period!) is extremely rare. Ex.
