Rare Gold Nugget from Yuba River, California

It has been a long time since I have seen a gold nugget from the Yuba River in California offered for sale. This one was found many years ago by a lucky gold prospector and I have owned it for many years. With dredging banned in Caifornia since 2005, there is next to no opportunity for gold prospectors to get any decent sized nuggets out of the Yuba River, making this a very rare nugget. It also happens to be one of the most gorgeous California nuggets I have ever seen and it is the perfect weight, size, and shape to be made into a pendant. Definitely jewelry/investment grade, the highest quality there is in natural gold nuggets. The nugget weighs 7.72 grams, just under a quarter ounce, and it is quite flat and thin. The size is 1" (25 mm) long. The color and sheen are absolutely gorgeous. High quality natural gold nuggets like this one are getting harder to find, as the placer gold bearing areas in California have been mostly mined out and dredging has been banned in the rivers and creeks.
