Awaruite, Josephine Creek Placers, Oregon

Here is an unusual one. These nuggets of awaruite, nickel-iron were recovered in pacer operation in Oregon. The thing is that these are terrestrial nickel iron, not meteoric and it occurs in serpentinites, obviously weathered out, in this case.. Strongly magnetic. Rare!
