    Out of the Grimes Creek Mining District of Idaho, this is an unusually rare locality in which to find such a relatively large Gold nugget. The offering weighs 95 grams (2.78 oz t). Nicknamed the "Grizzly Bear on Rock Pile," which can be seen in a particular manner of orientation, the sizable and irregular Gold features a lot of the golden-yellow precious metal grown around a matrix of grayish-white Quartz. Alluvial action has made most of the face smooth.
