    Gold Nugget
    Australia

    This intensely radiant Gold nugget from Australia is simply beautiful beyond belief. The sublime form of the brilliant piece is naturally aesthetic with a combination of vibrant color and intricate texture making the example a world-class representation. Of course, its incredible aesthetic characteristics are just one aspect of this extremely rare offering of the coveted precious metal. This monster weighs a stout 43.92 troy ounces making it part of a very elite club of Gold nuggets of such size and magnitude. This example shows beautifully from either side, as both shiny faces of this indented material are excessively striking. The singular nature of this stunner is obvious, and there is no reason to overinflate the attributes of the museum quality gigantic golden nugget which literally glows in the light due to the highly brilliant luster. Pieces such as this one command a premium valuation representing a fine investment opportunity from the standpoint of acquisition of the highest collector level specimen that also includes commodity value.
    Overall Measurements: 3.82 x 2.91 x 1.68 inches (9.71 x 7.40 x 4.26 cm), weighs 1,336 grams (43.92 oz t)
