The pictures say it all with these remarkable and extremely rare Colorado gold specimens. Without question, this is some of the best crystalized gold to ever come from Colorado and the collection I have comes from one prospector who spent his last 30 summers with a metal detector high in the Rocky Mountains in the French Gulch near Breckenridge, Colorado.
This collection has been on display at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden Colorado and has never been available for sale until now and the prospector (who has asked to remain annonymous) has given me an exclusive opportunity to sell his collection.
Please note: I have left these as they were found by the prospector however, if the buyer would like, I can clean this piece if needed before delivery as there is some natural matrix or host rock on some of these specimens.
Weight: 0.40 grams ( 6.17 grains)

There is gold and then there is GOLD! Not all gold was created equal. At GoldNuggetsForSale.com we spend most of our time seeking out the world’s finest gold nuggets and gold specimens.
-Only about 2% of the gold in the world is in “gold nugget” form and the other 98% is microscopic speck and flake gold found in ore. A good gold ore today will have about one ounce of gold for every two tons of rock.
Even rarer are crystallized gold specimens and only about 0.04% of the gold in the world is crystallized. These natural gold nuggets and gold specimens are true - one of a kind - masterpieces from the earth’s natural elements and are found mostly in pockets where the gold was able to crystallize while it formed, much the same way other crystals form deep inside the earth.
Most of the hard rock mines that uncovered these extremely rare gold nugget crystals are closed today and it is extremely rare to have a new discovery of crystallized gold nuggets or gold specimens.
At Goldnuggetsforsale.com, we are experts on natural gold nuggets and gold specimens and guarantee all our gold nuggets and gold specimens are natural and not man-made.
