Nugget Pond Mine, Betts Cove, Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
An unusual and showy gold thumbnail from the unique 1990s St. Johns, Newfoundland find that we obtained from the small lot. Clusters of bright, tiny, hackly, microcrystalline gold crystals are aesthetically placed atop the unique, pink granitic feldspar crystals, which rest on black, host rock matrix. Very few pieces had the black, host rock and pink granite.
