A unique gold nugget crystal from Serra do Caldeirão claims, Pontes e Lacerda, Alto Guaporé District, Mato Grosso, Brazil. A deep and very pure gold color and the gold purity is 99% with 0.5% Rhodium. The entire surface is crystalized and intricate vertical hoppering on one side. The shape is unique and has a twist at the bottom. We've nicknamed him the "J hook". This is one from a handful of gold nuggets I recently acquired from a family in Brazil who was associated with the mining claim. The location is now shut off by the Brazilian government and it is uncertain if there will be any more from this location.
