Getting Google-Eyed About A Gold Nugget

This 6.07-pound gold nugget, christened "The Butte Nugget" was discovered in the mountains of Butte County, CA, last July. Last week it sold for about $400,000 to a "prominent collector" of whatever this person collects. This person lives in the Bay Area and almost certainly is Tech Money I'd imagine; perhaps even somebody at the top of the food chain of the host of this blog, to wit, Google. I'm glad the nugget is staying home in Northern California.
