A big pear or hour glass shape and dense feel in the hand makes this gold nugget a unique find. This is especially true being that it is from California and natural gold nuggets from California are exceptionally rare these days and are hardly found in any quantity any more as California regulations have banned all river dredging to protect the rivers.
As a gold dealer and someone who gets to see a lot of gold nuggets. It is rare to see a collection such as this one with large gold nuggets from so many unique locations in North America. The collection comes from a single prospector who is a retired police officer and for the last 30 years, he spent six weeks every summer prospecting for gold.
