Nugget Pond Mine, Betts Cove, Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
An aesthetic thumbnail specimen of two, bright, burnished, leaf gold "rabbit ears" octahedrons to 5 mm perched atop granitic quartz and accented with platy dark minerals from the unique 1990s St. John's, Newfoundland find that we have got from the small lot. This is one of the few pieces in the lot that did not have the pink tinted granitic quartz and feldspar that is unique.
