Crystalline Gold Nuggets

Natural Crystalline gold nuggets, also referred to as crystallized gold nuggets, is gold in it's most natural form before it has been weathered and eroded by the elements. While placer gold nuggets have been carried along by glaciers, rivers, rain, floods, etc... and have been to some extent worn smooth, crystalline gold is gold that is found in pockets or rich veins in the rock, and is often still attached to it's host rock (usually quartz).

It is very rare to find any quantity of natural crystalline gold nuggets, because veins that rich in gold are extremely rare. Most gold found through hard rock mining is microscopic and is not visible to the naked eye. Occasionally a vein of gold will be found that is so rich that it produces a small quantity of crystalline gold nuggets like the ones you see below. Due to their rarity, natural crystalline gold nuggets usually sell for a large premium over river worn gold nuggets.

Most of my natural crystalline gold nuggets come from locations where the mine has been closed or has very limited production, both of which mean there are few if any additional crystalline gold nuggets coming from that location, making the few nuggets that exist increasingly rare. This means that the natural gold specimens from these locations will become more and more rare and more and more valuable as time goes by. As more people start to buy gold, more people will also start to collect rare natural gold specimens like these. For these reasons, in addition to the outright beauty of quality gold specimens, they make a very good investment.

Below are descriptions of some of the mines represented here:

The Mockingbird Mine in Mariposa County, California has produced quite a bit of crystalline gold over the years. The color and quality of gold specimens coming out of this mine are exceptional. No gold nugget collection would be complete without a couple of nice crystalline specimens from the Mockingbird Mine. I have a few nice pieces from this location for your consideration.

The Round Mountain Mine in Nevada is famous for amazing natural crystalline gold specimens and gold nugget crystals. In the "Rare Gold Nuggets" and "Gold Nugget Crystals" categories you will see many gold nuggets with trigons, octahedrons, cubes and wire gold crystals. In this category are some of the Round Mountain gold nugget specimens that have the less rare crystalline gold without the well defined crystals. The gold nuggets in this category are less expensive that the Round Mountain gold crystal specimens in the more rare categories. Collectors and investors love gold nuggets from the Round Mountain Mine because of the rarity and uniqueness of the natural gold nugget specimens.

Each natural crystalline gold nugget we sell has the weight clearly shown in the description and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
