A very pure gold nugget from the Eugene Mountains in North Central Nevada. The color is a brilliant deep yellow gold and has a very high purity. Nevada gold nuggets are actually quite rare and Nevada is well known for ore mines with pockets of specimen gold and fine gold deposits further South. I was able to acquire a handful of these very pure gold nuggets from a prospector who metal detects in the area. Most of these nuggets were found between 15 and 20 feet below the surface and a bulldozer is used to remove layers of earth with each new layer scooped out and then carefully detected to find the gold nuggets.
Weight: 1.44 grams (22.18 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.
