    Gold Nugget

    It is estimated that there are less than 700 Gold nuggets in existence that weigh over 25 troy ounces and less than 300 that weigh over 50 troy ounces. While this Gold does not quite hit that second threshold, it is a truly phenomenal example if for no other reason than it weighs virtually 40 troy ounces! This superb Gold nugget is Australian in origin and offers brilliant golden-yellow coloration, significant purity, and an amazing form replete with numerous cavities and indentations. There is really not much to say about an exceptional piece of natural Gold like this superlative Aussie nugget. The heavy, dense offering tips the scale at precisely 39.55 troy ounces. The immense mass of precious metal is visually stunning from both sides and stands out as an incomparable piece with collector aesthetics that is a true museum quality piece valued well beyond any calculations related to its weight. The coveted nugget is colossal but much more significant as a collectible mineral specimen than even as a huge piece of Gold. This is worthy of the finest display cases.
    Overall Measurements: 3.24 x 3.02 x 2.10 inches (8.23 x 7.67 x 5.33 cm), weighs 1,230 grams (39.55 oz t)
