The crystallization of a quenched gold liquid cluster modeled by an embedded atom method molecular dynamics simulation is investigated by a dynamical analysis of the packing environments of the surface and bulk. It is shown that stable (1 1 1) surface regions provide nucleation regions below which FCC growth initiates to produce an icosahedral cluster.
