This is a rare gold crystal from the jungles of Venezuela that is shaped like a turtle. I purchased this nugget directly from a man who buys them from the Venezuelan miners who make their living recovering these gorgeous gold crystals in the jungle in Zapata, just outside of Ikabaru, near Santa Elena de Uairen in Venezuela. To find one of these rare gold crystal nugget is such a distinct shape does not happen very often. This beautiful hand selected jewelry/investment grade gold specimen is 7/16" (10 mm) long. It weighs in at 12.4 Grains (0.81 Gram) and it comes with a certificate of authenticity.
