Brilliant Gold on Black - Gold and Arsenopyrite - California


 Sold Out 
I recently acquired some gold and arsenopyrite specimens from the Donald Dickey collection. Donald Dickey was the life long owner of the Oriental Gold Mine in the Allegheny Mining District of California. He was ahead of his time and preserved the best specimens for his collection and did not melt it all down as was the case with many of the mines in California.

Most of the specimens with arsenopyrite had a beautiful silvery color to the arsenopyrite. These are a little extra special with the absolute black arsenopyrite that is much more rare and is a sharp contrast to the beautiful yellow crystal gold.

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.
