A piece of gold like this is where Round Mountain really shows why it is one of the best gold mines in the world. A masterpiece with sharp trigons elongated trigon crystals and perfect precision with layered leaves full of herringbone and trigon crystals. This is as good as it gets in my opinion and this is a piece I could study for hours under magnification.
If you have watched some of our YouTube videos you know what a fan I am of the gold that comes from this gold mine in Nye County, Nevada. Here is the link: YouTube Channel
The gold is unlike anywhere else on planet earth and is considered some of the best natural gold to ever be discovered. Sadly, the mine has stopped preserving any crystallized gold and now processes all the gold that they mine.

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.
