Natural Crystalline Gold Nugget - Mariposa, California


A beautiful well formed piece of natural gold from Mariposa County, California. The Mariposa area is an epicenter for California gold and was established during the gold rush of the 19th century. This is a piece I picked up from a local prospector. Crystalline gold is a category all its own but is often confused with gold crystals. Crystalline gold generally has a very course structure and like gold crystals, the gold is usually associated with quartz. It differs from gold crystals in that there is no defined crystal structure i.e. trigon or octahedron formations.

Weight: 7.3 grams (112.3 grains)
