    Gold Nugget
    Tipuani alluvials, Tipuani
    Larecaja Province, La Paz

    From the exotic locality of La Paz, Bolivia, this Gold nugget is smooth over a majority of its brassy golden surface. Out of the Tipuani Mine, the piece was discovered by Marco Bolanos in 2021. This nugget has a nickname, the "Dancing Bears," but it is hard to see that in this primarily globular example. Weighing an impressive 76 grams (2.18 oz t), this piece is quite sizable with various cavities of visible Quartz. A shape more mountainous and artistic than the typical nugget, this piece with deep craters is visually attractive.
    Measurements: 1.46 x 1.11 x 0.78 x inches (3.71 x 2.81 x 1.99 cm), weighs 76 grams (2.18 oz t)
