A brilliant and thicker gold nugget crystal with a very faceted crystal structure and hoppered defined crystals. This is a fantastic gold specimen and one from a small and recent find in the Yukon. We search far and wide to find the "out of the ordinary" and this one certainly fits the bill. Alaska and Yukon gold nuggets are rare and something like this is much rarer...we hardly ever see this type of gold from the region.
