Most gold nuggets are simply formless "lumps" and typically do not appeal to collectors of fine minerals. This superb specimen from California, however, is an exception. In addition to be a significantly large specimen for the locality (Yuba River, Hanging Valleys, California), it has wonderfully-complex, almost anthropogenic form, and shows some evidence of rounded crystals as well. Minor iron oxides provide some aesthetic contrast. This exceptional California placer gold specimen and weighs 59 grams or 1.9 ounces. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection; Lynn Sims photo.
