Beautiful and Rare. This is a special gold specimen with a block type crystal structure and faceted lines with deep crevasses making it a very intricate piece of gold. There are a few notable trigon gold crystals at the top and a few more that are layered on the surface. The piece reminds me of a modern sculpture with a fine aesthetic form. I sift through hundreds of gold nuggets during the season and every once in a while I come across gold specimens of this caliber. Crystalized gold from the Yukon is quite rare.
