Mother Lode (Mother Lode belt), Tuolumne Co., California, USA

2.7 x 0.6 x 0.5 cm (largest). A fine 3-piece set from the Mother Lode District of California. Three large, sculptural, flattened to rounded, river-worn gold nuggets with rich gold lustre and color comprise this lot. The taller, rounded nugget looks like a rolling pin. The middle, leaf-like nugget is gorgeous on both sides. These are old-time nuggets. Weighs 13 grams.
