Crystalline Gold Nuggets

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 still attached to it's host rock (usually quartz), and is usually found in veins and pockets within the rock.

It is very rare to find any quantity of crystalline gold, 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, crystalline gold nuggets usually sell for a large premium over river worn gold nuggets.

Most of my 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 Eagles Nest Mine in Placer County, California is famous for incredible crystalline gold nuggets. It is not unusual to see trigons, octahedrons, wire gold in Eagles Nest gold specimens. Collectors and investors love gold nuggets from this location because of it's rarity and beauty. It's been years since any gold has come from this mine so it is not often that you see gold specimens for sale from this location anymore.

The Harvard Mine in Jamestown, California is now closed, so crystalline gold nuggets from this location will become even more rare than they are now, making them a very good investment. They are also a beautiful addition to any gold nugget collection.

The famous 16 to 1 Mine is in Alleghany in Sierra County, California. Most of the crystalline gold coming out of the 16 to 1 Mine still has quartz attached to it, and it is not often that you get such a nice selection of crystalline gold specimens from the 16 to 1 Mine with no quartz attached. The crystalline gold nuggets coming out of the 16 to 1 Mine are gorgeous, with great color and nice crystalline structure. I have a very limited selection of gold specimens from this location.

The Round Mountain Mine in Nevada is famous for amazing crystalline gold specimens. 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 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 gold nugget specimens.
