The Batea

MAKAL’s Batea Collection is inspired by ancient artisanal methods of gold extraction. Panning gold by hand is as old as Mayan civilisation itself.

Batea is Spanish for ‘gold pan’. The Batea is traditionally made of a solid piece of wood in a rounded and shallow shape.

The shape provides the perfect setting for MAKAL’s gold nuggets and the world famous Muzo emeralds.


Recycled certified SCS burnished silver (19,05gr) with a natural gold nugget (app. 1,8 gr) and a Muzo emerald (1,46ct). The nuggets are sourced directly from our partner in Canada and recovered naturally, chemical-free and untreated. The piece is designed and handcrafted in Italy.
