The Crown Jewels of Brazil - Gold Crystal from Pontes e Lacerda

One of my absolute best from this location. A large and brilliant natural gold crystal that has beautiful hoppering on both sides and a fantastic branching form. The luster of beautiful and very pure yellow gold is consistent throughout and the purity is 99% pure gold. This is an exceptional piece of gold and very rare now that the location has been shut off for some time.

The gold from Serra do Caldeirão claims, Pontes e Lacerda, Alto Guaporé District, Mato Grosso, Brazil was a short lived phenomenon when gold was discovered there in 2015. Thousands of locals and would be prospectors flocked to the area to claim their fortune. The Brazil government shut off the location within months and has tried to halt any of these golds from leaving the county. While the area is shut off, I'm told there are still prospectors who dig at night to try to uncover more of these magnificent gold crystals. I work diligently with a family in Brazil to purchase these specimens when I can find them. They are now considered very rare. A true prize in any prestigious collection.
