This unusually shaped natural gold nugget from Nome, Alaska would be a great addition to any collection. Adding a bail to this nugget to make a pendant for a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry would really show this specimen off. The Nome Gold Rush was a gold rush in Nome, Alaska, approximately 1899–1909. It is separated from other gold rushes by the ease with which gold could be obtained. Much of the gold was lying in the beach sand of the landing place and could be recovered without any need for a claim.
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.
