This gorgeous Natural Gold Nugget from California is beautifully textured and has lots of character. Like all my nuggets it is jewelry/investment grade. It weighs 2.52 Grams (38.9 Grains). It is quite flat and has a very nice shape, making it very suitable for a piece of jewelry. Found by a gold prospector in the historic gold fields of California, it is 1/2" (12 mm) long. This California Gold Nugget has amazing color. California gold nuggets are becoming very difficult to find for sale due to the banning of suction dredging in 2009, the method previously used to recover most gold nuggets in California. As with all our gold nuggets, it comes with a certificate of authenticity.
