Most Gold nuggets are simply shapeless masses that often have little collector appeal beyond their intrinsic metal value. This striking, large specimen from the Gold Fields of Western Australia is a noteworthy exception. Striking deep grooves, reminiscent of toothpaste being squeezed out of a tube or perhaps glacial striations, are the result of incipient spinel-law twinning which has now become somewhat rounded due to the effects of wind, water and time. Weighing 63.2 grams or over 2 ounces, it has some heft as well. A fine gold specimen from a classic locale, with bright buttery yellow color and good luster. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
