Toenail, 3.0 x 0.6 x 0.3 cm
Mother Lode (Mother Lode belt), Tuolumne Co., California, USA

3.0 x 0.6 x 0.3 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/longer, rounded nugget looks like a dented canoe with upturned prow and stern. The leaf-like nugget with the hole is gorgeous on both sides.
