Crystalline Gold Nuggets

CLICK HERE to see our great selection of "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.

Below are descriptions of some of the mines represented here:

The Palmer River Goldfield in Australia is the largest gold field in Queensland. This goldfield is situated in a very rugged and remote area approximately 130 kilometres west of Cooktown (named after Captain James Cook who conducted emergency repairs on the HMS Endeavour after it was holed by a reef near Cooktown). It is not often that you will see any crystalline gold from this area, as most of the gold is placer gold. The area is known for super pure gold. Gold found by the same gold prospector in the same location assayed at 97.6% pure, some of the purest natural gold I have ever seen.

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