Authentic, naturally occurring (dignified) gold nugget. The country of origin is Australia. The fine gold content is approx. 99 % of the metal weight, based on random samples taken by X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF); the metal weight is approx. 781 g (as per PX Precinox' certificate). The total weight incl. quartz is 878 grams, the size is approx. 123 mm (length) x 56 mm (width) x 39 mm (height), each measured at the "longest" point.
Shape: As can be seen on the photos, the quartz stone was not removed. Therefore you get a completely natural gold nugget. The surface has been "softened" by water and wind over thousands of years. The rule is "bought as seen".
Supplier: We have purchased this nugget from PX Precinox SA, a renowned, family-run precious metal supplier in Switzerland. The displayed "Certificate of Origin" is included. So there is no doubt about the authenticity and the clean origin of the nugget.
VAT: businesses purchase nuggets without value-added tax (tax liability of the service recipient). For consumers, 19% VAT is added. Nuggets are not treated as investment gold in the VAT law.
