A very rare and excellent native platinum nugget from an uncommon Alaskan locality - Fox Gulch, Goodnews Bay. The lustrous, very lightly rounded, 3-dimensional, sculptural nugget is composed of a multitude of tiny, hoppered, crudely cubic platinum crystals. This piece looks like a tiny, 3-sided, platinum Christmas tree with ornaments and a bent trunk. Rarely availableon the market. Weighs 15.76 carats or just over 3 grams.
