Bendigo, City of Greater Bendigo
The folds of this striking Gold nugget from Victoria, Australia, are punctuated by two visible small Quartz crystals with a reddish accent. A superb luster and great color describe this wonder from "Down Under" that is gorgeous in shape, complex in form, and extremely captivating. The brilliance is unmatched, as its lustrous nature is almost electric. Twists and folds characterize the highly textural surface, and the piece represents Australia quite well. Weighing 112 grams (3.62 oz t), there is a lot of the precious metal in this nugget. Of course, the value in this finer collectible specimen is not its considerable amount of Gold but, rather, its stunning aesthetics making it a truly collectible example.
