    Description

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

    A truly massive Gold nugget, this monster weighs a robust 179 grams (5.75 oz t). With some, but not much, visible, nice contrasting white Quartz, this exquisite golden-yellow example exhibits only one small Quartz-filled cavity. Beautiful, yet different, on both sides, this nugget offers complex faces of which either could be the primary display surface. The 'pockets' of Quartz are deep within the Gold, and the majority of the exposed precious metal is, generally, naturally smooth and surrounded by lots of textural cavities.
    Measurements: 2.32 x 1.63 x 0.74 x inches (5.90 x 4.15 x 1.87 cm), weighs 179 grams (5.75 oz t)


    Estimate: $12,000 - up.
