The high grade gold veins that were uncovered at the Round Mountain Gold Mine in the late 1990s created a frenzy in the natural gold world and the gold is known as being some of the best crystalized gold in the world. These phenomenal gold specimens have all been mined out and no new gold has been discovered - what was found is mostly now in the hands of museums and private collections. Weight: 2.09 grams (32.26 grains) Dimensions: 3/4 or 19mm. There is gold and then there is GOLD!
Not all gold was created equal. 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 earths 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. Every piece we sell is hand selected from miners and prospectors. Gold is in more demand now and makes an excellent investment. I photograph all my nuggets using a close-up lens, which magnifies the nuggets to show more detail.
The nugget you see is the nugget you will receive. Regarding weight please note that there are 15.43 grains in one gram and 31.1 grams in one troy ounce.
