Description




Eureka! There's gold in this here lot. While all the great gold rushes on the North American continent took place more than a century ago, you can still enjoy the fruits of a determined prospector's labors with this pair of gold nuggets. These glittering precious metal treasures were unearthed long ago and provide a direct link to one of the most thrilling times in history, when lots of blood, sweat and tears went into their finding. The larger of these (2) nuggets is approximately the size of a quarter and has a reported weight of 11 grams and the smaller nugget is about half the size of a dime, but much denser with a weight of 6 grams. Established standards put the purity of gold nuggets in the 20.5-22K range, which is nearly pure, with the minority elements typically being silver or copper. With proper respect to their precious metal value, these naturally formed nuggets have a beauty that for some cannot be matched by crafted jewelry and a historic value that surpasses the measure of a scale.
