Lot Details
Gold Nugget—"The Orca"
Kalgoorlie, West Australia
Many collectors of gold (and also meteorites) enjoy collecting zoomorphic specimens, i.e. those specimens that resemble a certain animal. This attractive, three-dimensional nugget gives the appearance of a whale or dolphin as jumping through the water. Ancient and water-worn, as evidenced by its smooth surfaces, this nugget is particularly appealing from the famous gold fields of Kalgoorlie.
Weighing approximately 2.21 ozt (68.8 grams) and measuring 2 ½ x 1 ½ x ½ in.
