Gold Nuggets, Too!

For more than a decade, Northern Nevada Gold has sold mineral specimens, nuggets, and gold nugget jewelry online. Our world-class specimens are ideal for classroom education, training, investment, gifts, or simply enjoyment.


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.

    Austin Nevada High-Grade!!!  Slab .5 mm thick cut from a Quartz vein with high-grade Silver mineralization. Austin NV was an early boom town where bonanza Silver was mined from the 1860s to 1887. A slight revival in 1910 was short lived. High grade, oxidized, small Quartz veins occurred in igneous Monzonite rock.  This oxidized Silver occurred as Native Silver and as Horn Silver, a Silver Chloride.  Later, as the mines went ever deeper, the mineralization changed to the original sulfide suite. This slab shows distinct banding of Quartz/feldspar matrix with a 15 mm band of gray, Silver sulfides, probably Argentite and Tetrahedrite. There are several other thin, wavey bands of the copper sulfide mineral Bornite/Covellite also present. I also observed a few traces of Native Gold. A significant early Nevada Silver specimen.
