An interesting leaf gold specimen from Mt. Kare, Papua New Guinea. A brilliant color and some intricate flattened crystal formations on the surface. Mt Kare gold crystals are rare. The gold rush lasted for only six years and most of the gold was melted down or is held in private collections. I was able to recently acquire a small handful after a long search for the historic gold for the website.
