This is my absolute favorite gold nugget in my collection. It looks like multiple creatures. The first photo shows it as a seal in profile. You can see the seals complete head, including the detail for the forehead, eye and mouth. You can see the flipper on the side (better detail of the flipper in the second photo) and the tail complete with a curve at the end. Such intricate detail in a natural gold nugget is not often seen.
To some people it will look more like a goose instead of a seal. Turn it over (third photo) and you can see a distinct dog head in profile on the right side. And down the length you can even see the dogs shoulder and foreleg.
Can you see why it is my favorite nugget??? This is a natural Australian Gold Nugget. It is very clean with only one area that has a little ironstone in a couple crevices in the nugget (see the last photo). It is very long at 3.5" long x 1.37" wide x 5/8" thick. It weighs in at a very hefty 8.26 Troy Ounces. (256.9 Grams).
Australian gold nuggets are very pure, usually in the range of 92% to 98% pure. Natural Gold Nuggets in distinct shapes like this do not come along very often, and, as you can see, I have the largest collection of gold nuggets in distinct shapes anywhere. Investors, jewelers and collectors love Australian Gold Nuggets because of their high purity and beautiful color. This one is especially amazing because of it's multiple distinct shapes.
