Platinum Nugget With Crystalline Structure

Platinum in itself is a rare find. To find a platinum chunk this size, 1.4 oz., with a crystal structure is not often heard of. This was found on a river where there is not much chance of finding gold or many other metals. Furthermore, I found it on the surface while I was playing around with my detector to see what types of rocks would come up for lapidary purposes.  This find totally made my day to say the least.
