The gold in this specimen is less than 1mm in thickness, giving it the form of a flat golden ribbon. This is a natural form of gold leaf crystallization, not man made.  This very rare form of gold is rarely available, and it is certainly one of the oddest gold pieces you could own. This is an old piece, weighing half a gram, from a late '90s find at the Harvard Mine. It has not been worked, shaped or manipulated in any way.
