Most gold nuggets are simply formless "lumps" and typically do not appeal to collectors of fine minerals. This superb specimen from Arizona, however, is an exception. In addition to be a significantly large specimen for the locality (Tombstone District, Cochise County Arizona), it has wonderfully-complex, almost anthropogenic form, and shows some evidence of rounded crystals as well. Minor while quartz provides some aesthetic contrast. This exceptional Arizona gold specimen was featured on the cover of "Rock and Gem" Magazine in January 2012. A significant Arizona gold specimen for the serious collector. Weighs 72.5 grams or 2.3 ounces. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection; Lynn Sims photo.
