Gold (soldered), Jiaodong, Shangdong, China Miniature 0.5 x 3 x 4 cm. Originally priced at $2500 before determined to be soldered. Not For Sale. LISTED TO PREVENT COLLECTORS FROM FRAUD.
Bright native gold crystallized in arborescent branching aggregates with no point of attachment, however upon close examination I found that this specimen was soldered from at least 2 smaller groups of crystals. It appears that the crystals are natural (likely etched out of quartz).
