Meet Australian Gold Nugget "Fair Dinkum"

"Fair Dinkum" is a nugget found in Australia in 2014. As the story goes, seasoned prospector Mick Brown was a couple of weeks into giving up smoking and was getting grumpy so his wife told him to leave the house for some fresh air.

Six inches beneath the surface, Mr. Brown hit the top of a gold nugget with his detector. "I thought bugger me, it is, it's bloody gold", Mr. Brown said. "I just dug it up, 87 ounces of the good stuff".

The name "Fair dinkum" came about as people left its weight and said, "fair dinkum this is huge".

Mr. Brown finds his nugget quite attractive and says it has "good grooves and moves".  He thought is was silly to be secretive about his nugget and thought it better to let people have a hold. "What am I supposed to do, 'yeah I've found a nugget but you can't look at it'", he said. "It's cool and it's given everyone a good little rev up."

As a result, many replicas have been created to give everyone a chance to see what a great nugget it is.

Come out to Ironstone's Heritage Jewelry Shoppe and take a look at one of Mr. Brown's exact replicas.

Truly as beautiful as Mr. Brown declares.
