This video is a fun — and I think pretty fascinating – update to the field trip I took back in December to see the world’s largest crystalline gold nugget.
Mining analyst Jeff Clark and had I traveled to Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys California to see the Crown Jewel, a remarkable 640 troy ounce crystalline gold nugget, which at the time, we understood was the largest in existence in the world.
But soon after the video of our road trip aired, I received an email informing me that another crystalline nugget had recently been discovered that’s even larger.
It’s on display at the Perot Museum Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas, and is owned by Barry and Beth Kitt. Barry and I connected on the phone and he kindly invited me to come see the nugget with him whenever I was next in town.
Well, I made a whirlwind trip through Texas last week and of course had to take him up on his offer.
Even though it was closed to the public that day, the kind staff at the Perot rolled out the red carpet for us and let me record my private viewing of this masterpiece of nature. Folks, it is truly a wonder to behold.
As is the slightly smaller placer gold nugget also on display there, which I briefly got to hold myself – though not for long as it was so dang heavy I nearly dropped it.
If you’re a fan of precious metals, or just appreciate staggering examples of Nature’s beauty, you’ll want to watch this once-in-a-lifetime private tour of two of the largest gold nuggets remaining in existence today.
