    Description

    Gold Nugget
    Australia

    It is generally believed there are less than 700 Gold nuggets weighing over 25 ounces, in existence, and this complex and "vascular" looking example represents an even more rarified echelon boasting a total weight of 37.75 troy ounces. Heavy, dense and solid, the odd and unique looking Gold specimen has an incredible form with separate but fully fused twisting segments making it a highly aesthetic and visually complicated piece. The dimensional nugget exhibits a classic golden hue over a convoluted surface that is striking from any angle. The artistic mineral actually stands on its own with a nice vertical orientation.
    Overall Measurements: 2.91 x 2.46 x 1.72 inches (7.40 x 6.24 x 4.36 cm), weighs 1, 174 grams

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000.
