This is certainly a gold nugget with several very interesting qualities. It has a very unique shape with a tapered base that expands and then tapers again into a long curved formation...quite unique and it is also a very large and substantial gold nugget from the Yukon. If you're familiar with gold nuggets found in the Yukon, then you know it is extremely rare to find any single gold piece over a few grams. Most of the gold in that region is flake gold, making a gold nugget of this size incredibly rare indeed. this one weighs a whopping 18.66 grams - that's over half a Troy ounce.
