Unusual Native Gold Nugget with Unique Inclusion
Australia
This distinctive natural gold nugget is distinguished by its highly unusual quartz inclusion deeply embedded, yet visible on one side—clearly taking the form of a heart. The striking angularity of the nugget indicates a past when other quartz crystal associates may once have been present, then later dissolved, leaving evidence of their prismatic habit once in contact with the gold. The patina is a bright, buttery yellow.
Weighing approximately 17.67 ozt (549.0 grams) and measuring 3 1/8 x 1 5/8 x 1 3/8in
