    Gold Nugget
    Eagle Creek; Mastodon Fork; Miller Fork; Cripple Creek Mine
    Circle District, Yukon-Koyukuk Borough
    Alaska, USA

    This rather massive Gold nugget from Alaska is quite attractive with a rich golden coloration and atypical clean appearance. The colossal example weighs a whopping 12.5 troy ounces, testing to a full 11.78 troy ounces of Gold! This larger example exhibits one concave and one convex side, both of which feature an intriguingly complex texture. This nugget is a stunner, especially for an Alaskan piece, and, literally, feels heavy, solid and valuable in the hand. From Eagle Creek in the famed Circle Mining District, this is a major nugget.
    Overall Measurements: 3.19 x 2.52 x 0.74 inches (8.09 x 6.39 x 1.87 cm), weighs 387.26 grams (11.78 oz t)

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