I was shocked at the heft of this beautiful, brassy nugget, coming in at 44 grams in mass. It is a very bright, natural crystallized nugget, with complex but rounded faces all around. We think it clearly shows that it was once a large solid crystal, with a litle sidecar, and then was naturally rounded in a streambed. It is, again, shockingly hefty for what seemed a little nugget, and it really impresses when held for that reason as well as visually. Purchased from an old prospector who found this in Alaska in the 1970s.
