This piece is a bit of an oddity and is fascinating to study up close. Its sizable at 14 grams and interesting for its complexity. A very rare gold specimen that comprises intricate curved leaf gold that wraps in circular formations and makes deep caverns. There is intricate cluster of wire crystals on one side and some modified octahedron crystals mixed into the branches that extend off the base. Brilliant white quartz peppers the specimen in several spots that have a look of diamonds in the rough. Did I say intricate? I don't often see pieces like this one with so much going on.
