Miniature, 4.0 x 3.0 x 0.7 cm
Chuquaiaguillo River, La Paz Dept., Bolivia

An EXCEPTIONALLY RARE nugget of some size, from placers in Bolivia. This piece, complete and beautiful all around, is actually crudely crystallized in some parts as you can see. It has an unusual dark brassy patina, rather than the lightest gold color, and thus stands out quite readily from Aussie and US nuggets. A rare treasure I purchased from somebody who was using it as a jewelry pendant (a heavy one at 84 grams or almost 3 ounces!!).
