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.
