Item Description

This is certainly not one of your typical flattish or rounded gold nuggets from the more common Australian locales. The bright, rich, mellow-yellow gold looks sharply crystallized, but is, in fact casted after long dissolved-away blocky rock. The scultpural and artistic aspect of this cutie is outstanding. And the bit of attached ironstone is a nifty accent. VERY rare Australian gold in this form. 35.46 carats or just over 7 grams. The current price of gold is over $1494/troy ounce or over $48/gram. Bullion value ALONE is $336. Australian specimen gold of this unique form is much more, and I have seen few of this form and style
