Gold (Au) Native Element- The most basic and common pattern for gold crystals is the octagon. This beautiful museum quality specimen shows a large number of octagonal whole crystals that have grown together into a solid mass.  The specimen weighs several ounces and was taken from a gold mine in California in the late 1800s.

Like an old gold-panning prospector, you must resign yourself to digging up a lot of sand from which you will later patiently wash out a few minute particles of gold ore.
