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.

    ADULARIA..KAlSi3O8. A variety of potash Feldspar formed at comparatively low temperatures in veins. Frequently found with Gold in many bonanza deposits. This specimen does not show any Gold, however it comes from veins where Gold does occur. Looks like Calcite, with simple rhombohedral crystals, but it is hard (6) and does not fizz with acid. A very curious mineral that I see frequently while metal detecting. Found at the Jumbo Mine.

    CREEDE, Colorado SILVER!!!!   Bulldog Mine High-Grade!!!  Slab .5 mm thick cut from a Barite vein with high-grade Silver mineralization. Creede was mined from the 1870s to 1960s. A revival was made in 1969 when the Homestake Mining Co.  opened up the Bulldog Mine and produced millions of ounces of Silver. The mine was shut down in 1985 due to low Silver prices.  Hecla is currently active on this property.

    This slab shows distinct banding of white Barite matrix with numerous bands of gray, Silver sulfides, probably Argentite/Acmite.  Most of the bands contain Native Silver,  especially on the crests of the anticlinal bands, and on the lower right edge.
