Santa Elena de Uairen
This specimen of Gold from Venezuela needs little build-up given it has the provenance of having graced the collections of both Frank M. Levy and the legendary F. John Barlow. The relatively thin and flattened "fishhook" boasts a most unusual form and weighs a healthy 26 grams. The elongated shape allows for a rather dramatic presentation in its custom engraved acrylic base that accompanies this collectible piece.
