Sharp Dendritic leaf gold on quartz - Round Mountain, Nevada


A beautiful grey and white quartz that lays as the canvass for a magnificent spray of leaf gold. The gold is an intricate leaf gold with blades that angle up and branch out in different directions. Each leaf of gold has a unique dendritic pattern on the surface and is well crystalized. This would be a prominent gold specimen in any collection. To better preserve and display this piece, it has been attached to a plexiglass display stand. If the new owner of this specimen would like this removed, I am happy to do that at their request.

There is gold and then there is GOLD! Not all gold was created equal. At 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, 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.
