It test 18 to 22K which is inline with gold found in the region. If you look at the images carefully, you will see secondary mineral build up on the crystallized side of the nugget. I suggested to Dr. Bunch that it might be a miner's button since it is so odd. A miner's button is where they take smaller pieces of gold and melt them into a larger piece which is easier to handle and weigh out. He stated that any way you look at it, it is a gold nugget. It was found near a creek and not in it, so the rounding and smoothing you see on other placer nuggets would not have taken place thus the rough appearance. Dr. Bunch stated to me that he believes it is natural since he has seen all shapes and sizes of gold from the area.
