Platinum Nuggets are a great way to invest in platinum. These Natural Platinum Nugget Crystals come from prospecting in Kondyer Massif, Khabarovskiy Kray, in the Eastern Siberian Region of Russia. These platinum crystals are the rarest form of platinum on earth, as this location is the only place they are found. They have been referred to by one geologist as "rarer than rare". I also have the largest selection of naturally gold coated platinum crystals from this area that you will see anywhere. Talk about rare, you will almost never see these natural gold coated nuggets offered for sale. Each nugget comes with a location card authenticating the discovery location and certifying the fact that it is a natural platinum crystal nugget. Notice the incredible geometric shapes of these spectacular platinum crystals. They are all gem grade multi-crystal platinum nuggets and would make a wonderful addition to your collection. It is extremely rare to see one of these nuggets for sale over about 1/2 gram. Many of my platinum nugget crystals are over 1 gram as you can see below.
Pure platinum is not found in natural specimens and it is usually alloyed with other metals such as iron, nickel, copper, gold, rhodium, iridium, palladium, ruthenium and osmium. The rarer of these alloy metals are almost never found on their own in significant deposits and often platinum becomes the primary ore containing many of these rarer metals. The presence of iron in platinum crystals can result in the platinum crystals being magnetic.
I have the largest collection of Platinum Nugget crystals from Russia that you will find anywhere, and at my current prices they are selling for much less than these crystals would normally sell for. Do a Google search for "platinum nuggets" and you will see that there are only a couple of others selling these rare platinum crystals. Check out their prices and you will see that mine are priced very low compared to the others, and my quality is second to none. Occasionally you will see one or two for sale on eBay, and you will see that they are usually selling for much higher prices than mine. At the prices I am charging for these rare platinum specimens they are a bargain and a great investment. You can make good money reselling them now and they are bound to increase significantly in value because of the rarity.
I can offer these nuggets at such a low price because I bought almost the entire supply from the exporter a number of years ago after they got in their largest shipment ever. Currently it is almost impossible to export these nuggets from Russia as the Russian Gov't is holding onto all the precious metals they can, and the supply of these nuggets has been sharply reduced as the placer grounds where they are found have mostly been worked over, so they become more and more rare as the years go by. It has been many years since I have seen any quantity of these rare platinum nuggets offered for sale. This is probably the last time you will see them offered at such a low price.
