Gold (crystallized nugget)
This hefty gold nugget, weighing in at just over 150 grams (approx 5 troy ounces), is a crystallized nugget of a sort rarely seen in good, aesthetic specimens. It has, as you can see, a "tortured", elongated crystal rope curving up from the main nugget mass. Such pieces are seldom found, and this would be considered a large "rope gold" crystal by any standard. The piece has a beautiful slightly copper or brassy patina, a little darker than normal Aussie nuggets from the more common Victoria locales. It was long in the Ed David Collection until the mid-90s, after which it was in the collection of collector/dealer Lawrence Conklin.
