Gold

TW48AI3: Floater and very aerial aggregate of strongly elongated octahedral crystals with Spinel twins and very well defined hooked and skeletal growths. Luster and color are excellent. Such samples seem destined to be, in a short time, a worldwide classic. We analyzed these Gold samples and they are really special. They contain 99.1% Gold and about 0.5 % Rhodium which is quite uncommon. We’ll send a copy of the analysis of these Golds to the buyer.
