They Just Had To Have A Name...

It is such fun to find gold nuggets that take on the shape of something classic or familiar - most of them don't.  Even though these are listed on their appropriate page for size, we felt they deserve 

a little extra attention and show-casing!

First there was the Golden Spike....

Signifying  the monumental completion of the first transcontinental rail road.  

And now... 150 years later... we present The Golden Wedge, celebrating over 60 years of Gold Nugget Man's search for the real thing.  This is it - over eleven grams in one of the purest and stunning, naturally formed gold nuggets you could wish for! It even shows a tiny trace of its native mother quartz. This is one of Natures truly illustrious creations and some of the best Nevada has to offer.

Held at the right angle, this amazing 11.30 gram nugget is a "huge" likeness to an old favorite - Jimmy Durante -famous for his "schnoz" and one of America's most iconic and beloved showmen.

The Golden Boot

This hefty, natural work of art is nothing to "scuff" at - pardon the pun.  An amazing piece, with so many naturally intricate features, it would make even Rumpelstiltskin wild with envy!  In fact, it even has a quartz "jewel" inset in the toe that looks as though it was set by the greatest craftsman that ever existed.  Ya know, I suppose it actually was!  This magical golden piece is totally captivating.  We're so glad we found it and can offer it to you at this time!

The Mask

2.11 grams of pure "spooky"!

It came to us through an incredible set of circumstances... the heat that day had been tortuously brutal, so working by night was a blessed relief.  This particular evening, by the strangely eerie and even spooky light of a most ominous moon, the coyotes were nervously voicing their warnings in the nearby hills around us.  We felt tension in the air.  Our senses were tingling, and we concurred that something was looming.  But what?  Then this syncopated oddity, this voo doo-like thing, this strikingly unbelievable gold nugget presented itself to us  as it peered up from the earth in response to the glare of our lights.  That explained the electricity in the air and yes, the incessant howling and yipping suddenly ceased..... 

All was silent, that is until we began our chattering as we expressed our excitement and surprise. 

What a night!  What a nugget!  Here it is... The mask is among us...

Aptly named "Folded" because it is - on both sides - and because it's even folded double upon closer inspection!  And so named because what it has been through - it needs a name! 

It has definitely earned this one! 

"Folded" is an iconic Nevada gold nugget with such an untold but obvious history and so much character that its development to this stage is truly remarkable.  There must have been a radical occurrence beneath the earth's surface.

 Here's the proof.

We're proud to offer "Folded" to you.

"Neanderthal Battle Club" 

What a wonderful phenomenon!   This golden battle club  - with a touch of older than old  stone age quartz - is a superb conversation piece.  Ever  heard of  "ally-oop"?   It's an old comic strip.  It's also a hit rock and roll cave man song from 1960 by the Hollywood Argyles, written by Dallas Frazier  - one  of the world's greatest songwriters.  We celebrate all of this and the most famous caveman of all  time and his trademark weapon of choice with the marvelous, all natural

show piece nugget now known as the

"Neanderthal Battle Club"

  What a prize possession! 

This splendid piece of primitive gold

is sure to be the centerpiece of your collection!

"The Golden Rock of Gibraltar"

Why would something so iconic come to us from the depths of this planet???   Perhaps there's a reason....

The Rock of Gibraltar stands as a symbol of strength and stability to the world.  It's been fought for down through many centuries.  It was a position of security to the allies in WWII.  Now due to forces perhaps beyond what we think we know, there's a smaller but amazing and natural  "Golden Rock of Gibraltar".  It naturally sits in a pose and position of eminence.  Now it's in our hands, because a higher power placed it there.  We are the delivery man - the Finder... should you choose to be the new keeper of this fabulous gold nugget, your pride of ownership will be  justified.  "Gibraltar" appears here as it naturally occurred and as it is now.  A magnificent gold nugget weighing over seven grams.  A Wonder of Nature.  By no means the largest nugget in existence, but truly one of significance.  Study it closely! We want you to know all about the Golden Rock of Gibraltar.

  Now available from Gold Nugget Man!
