A well defined and faceted gold crystal nugget with a large octahedron gold crystal on the top and a faceted body exposing multiple gold crystals with slight striations. Note the gorgeous buttery gold color on this one...its a very pure gold nugget crystal - fantastic and rare! We've recently sourced from a mine in the Yukon. Our source has asked us to not disclose the mine location due to the rarity of the gold he has discovered. Gold crystals from the Yukon are extremely rare. We were able to obtain a small batch from the mine and sourced the best of the best, handpicking the best from the mine. Gold nuggets with any crystal structure are almost unheard of from the Yukon and Alaska territories and we feel very fortunate to be able to offer these remarkable gold specimens from the region.
