A large and heavy rare crystalline gold nugget specimen from Pima County, Arizona. The video below truly says it all about this very unique crystalline gold specimen and this is one I didn't think I would see available for sale on the website. But the prospector, who found it just over a year ago, has decided to part ways with this exceptionally large and extremely rare gold specimen from Pima County Arizona. The video below is worth watching to see the etching process and how this one was etched from the quartz. Please note, there is a slight weight discrepancy as the specimen had not completely dried from the etching and rinsing process when it was weighed for the video. The weight has changed slightly after a thorough drying out period (several weeks) and the true weight of the specimen is 16.89 troy ounces.
Weight: 525.4 grams (16.89 Troy Ounces)
Dimensions: 4-3/4" or 110mm

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.
