    Description

    Gold Nugget
    Ganes Creek Mine, Innoko Mining District
    Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area
    Alaska, USA

    This rather sizable Gold nugget from Alaska is quite heavy, weighing 260 grams (8.35 oz t) and evidences only minimal visible matrix. The shape of this larger example is naturally artistic, with numerous, rounded protrusions abounding off a relatively smooth surface - the product of obvious alluvial weathering. For an Alaskan nugget, the offering is highly aesthetic and boasts the typical brassy-golden coloration diagnostic of Golds from "The Last Frontier" in many cases. This is, simply, one really big and nice Alaskan nugget. The combination of its size and visual appeal makes it an upper echelon offering.
    Measurements: 2.54 x 1.68 x 0.84 x inches (6.45 x 4.26 x 2.13 cm), weighs 260 grams (8.35 oz t)
