Specimen gold is generally found and retrieved from lode gold deposits. These are usually high-grade occurences found in quartz veins, or less commonly calcite. Gold may also be found as specimens in, or with iron oxides, adularia (a low-temperature feldspar), sulfides, and with other silica-rich minerals such as tourmaline, amythest, or clay minerals.


Gold nuggets are created in nature as a result of the surface weathering processes on high-grade gold bearing quartz veins, or rarely other types of geologic gold deposits.

    CHINESE NATIVE SILVER!!!!! RARE!!!  Beautiful crystallized wire Silver specimen from the Huang Jun mine, exhibiting soft silver-grey metallic luster. Beautifully presented specimen.  Exhibits a spray of six long, curving wires on a base of native silver and other matrix. Some "Rams Head" wire. Very minor oxidation.  Very sturdy piece.  Small trace of Quartz/Calcite matrix remains.   I obtained these specimens at an International Gem and Mineral Exhibition in Changsha China in May, 2014.  These were the ONLY Native Silver specimens in the entire show. Seems the Chinese Government does not allow miners to sell precious metals to anyone other than the Government owned and controlled refiners. (That is my interpretation) I am sorry they are sooo expensive...but I had to pay dearly to get them myself. Only through my Chinese wifes wonderful negotiating skills was I able to obtain these pieces. I dont know very much geologic detail about the deposit. Only does Mexico produce any Native Silver and its very difficult to obtain today.
