Nugget Pond Mine, Betts Cove, Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
An UNUSUAL and showy gold thumbnail from a unique 1990s St. Johns, Newfoundland find that we have got from the small lot. Bright, microcrystalline gold leaves project upward, like feathers, from the unique, pink granitic quartz and feldspar, which rest on black, host rock matrix. Very few pieces had the black, host rock and pink granite.
