外文标题：Chinese herdsman finds 7.85kg gold nugget worth $250,000 on the ground
BEIJING: A Chinese herdsman has found a 7.85 kg gold nugget, worth a whopping $255,000, lying on bare ground in country's far western Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
The Kazak herdsman, Berek Sawut, from Qinghe County in Altay Prefecture discovered the nugget last Friday.
The price of the nugget, based on the purity (nuggets are usually 80 to 90 per cent pure), is 1.6 million yuan (USD 255,313), state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Zhu Xinfeng, a local expert said the price of natural gold, considering its uniqueness, is often several times higher than that of standard gold.
The random-shaped gold nugget weighs 7.85 kg and is about 23 centimetres long, 18 centimetres wide and 8 centimetres thick.
A gold nugget is a naturally produced irregular piece of gold, and is most frequently found through mining.
