Weighing a whopping 121.3g, the 22-carat lump is the biggest of its kind to be found in the UK.

The nugget, which has a small hole in the middle, was discovered in a Scottish river by an unnamed explorer.

It was found in two pieces that slot together perfectly, earning it the nickname The Reunion Nugget.

Lee Palmer, author of Gold Occurrences in the UK, said: “This is now the largest nugget in existence in the UK.

“When you look at it, it’s doughnut-shaped.

“There are no impurities in it, it is just pure gold nugget of about 22 carats.

“It really is a remarkable find.”

The Reunion Nugget was discovered in a mystery Scottish river in May.

It was found using the method of “sniping”, which involves gold hunters lying facedown in a river while wearing a snorkel and dry suit.
