The Zapata goldfields of southern Venezuela are known for their superb, often complexly-twinned gold crystal specimens. This is an outstanding 3 cm tall example composed of beautifully-branching, "herringbone" style spinel-twinned gold crystals without matrix. The luster and crystal definition are exceptional for the locality, and the crystal form is rather elegant. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection. Joaquin Callen photo.
