Wow, this one is a unique find and a very rare piece of gold. Its a thick plate gold with a lot of surface are for the weight. The edges are folded over and show some very distinct gold crystals that are flattened. This is one from a small batch that we've recently sourced from an undisclosed mine in the Yukon. Gold nuggets and plate gold with a crystal structure are almost unheard of from the Yukon and Alaska territories and we feel fortunate to be able to offer such fantastic gold from the region - we've been looking for these kinds of nuggets for a long time.
