Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 2.8 x 2.3 cm
Yuba River, Nevada Co., California, USA
This is a GORGEOUS nugget of approximately 6 ounces, that come sfrom the historic Yuba River placers area. It was mined and kept in a family collection since the 1950s or 1960s, I was told by my source, who sold that particular family collection. It has a bright, brassy patina, really interesting and curvaceous form, and a lot of surface volume for the weight so that it look simpressive on a shelf or in the hand. Mass is 182 grams. For this locality, it is outstanding; but its good on its own aesthetic merits as well.
