My great grandpa Jack was a master watch maker in the San Francisco Bay area where he had 28 other watch makers working under him. In the 1930's He moved to Oroville and started his own a retail jewelry store. His son , my grandpa Roy who made gold nugget jewelry in retail store started wholesaling them and the business grew so much he opened up the company called Orocal in the mid 1960's. I have a background with a business degree with a concentration in online communication.

I was the first one in the family to put Gold Nuggets on the Internet and sell to thousands of people from all over the world. We believe that by giving back this allows us to be blessed with new connections finding gold.

All nuggets are pictured by a US quarter for comparison witch has a diameter of 24.66 mm and a width of 1.75mm. The scale is calibrated before every batch and the scales are new. The nuggets are also pictured on both sides. What is a Natural Gold Nugget?

It is a piece of gold that broke out of quartz deposits within the earth when erosion took place. It also goes by the name Placer Gold and each piece is a one of a kind with no two being exactly alike. Where can they be found? Wherever the effects of erosion took place.

That would include rivers, streams, ancient dried up river channels and underground riverbeds. Gold nuggets range from 65 to 95 fine 16-23KT gold and can have other mineral content such as silver and copper mixed in with it. What sizes do they come in? Gold Nuggets come in all sizes, the smaller one range in sizes from 1 millimeter up to 6 and is often referred to as flakes. Bigger flakes are called nuggets and have been found as large as 2500 ounces although almost all nuggets bigger than 300 ounces were melted.

How Are Natural Gold Nuggets found? They can be found in rivers and streams using a gold pan or suction dredges that act like an underground vacuum cleaner. Larger operations use large machinery that dig up huge sections of dirt weighing several tons and run it through machines that separate the gold from the dirt.

Nuggets are also found using a metal detector. They are weighed by the troy ounces.

12 ounces = one pound which differs from weight which is 16 ounces to the pound. The troy ounces are broke up into 20-penny weight to the ounces and use the symbol DWT or by the grams which has 31.1 to the ounces. The larger the nugget the more rare and valuable they are. A one-ounce nugget is now considered as rare as a five-carat diamond. How many of those do you own?

Why are some real bright and others dull? Because it was formed underground in quartz deposit you often find quartz mixed in with it.

When they broke off into the rivers and streams they tumbled against the sand and gravel, which gave the nuggets, its texture but dulled it. They can be cleaned in different solutions, and then tumbled in different media to give it the shine. What do we mean by Authentic Alaskan Yukon BC Nugget.
