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.

SILVER in Conglomerate!!!!   

Crystalline, dendritic Silver specimen from the historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines.  This 1 cm. thick slab has been cut with a diamond saw, with one polished, and one rough, as found side. Native Silver is hosted in a pebble- conglomerate matrix.  Unique, dendritic Silver exhibits brilliant silver metallic luster. Individual Silver crystals are surrounded by another Silver mineral, or perhaps Cobalt.  This specimen comes from the old, 1900s historic Castle Mine, mine dump.   Massive Native Silver was discovered in veins in Pre-Cambrian Greenstones in Cobalt, Ontario in 1903 and hundreds of mines were eventually exploiting the metal. By 1915 the mines were essentially exhausted. Some minor mining occurred later.  Native Silver was found in several important American mining districts historically. Virginia City, Tonopah, Austin, and Rochester were the most productive Nevada mines. Mexico produced huge amounts as did several South American countries. Today a few of these American mines are still producing Silver...but not Native Silver. Moreover, only a few foreign countries still produce Silver and it's very difficult to obtain any Native specimens today. Weighs  .96  OZ.

Every 1 Pound Bag contains a guaranteed amount of one Gram of real placer Gold. Ideal material for testing your skills with a Gold pan, or Gold wheel.

This material will contain 2 Grams, guaranteed, of real placer Gold. Both size bags contain black sands (Magnetite) however this 3 Pounder may contain larger size nuggets. This material is recommended not only as a panning concentrate but also as a calibrating material for testing your dry washer or high-banker. Again, it is advised that you try re-circulating the spoils to capture all the guaranteed Gold, and to allow you to repeat the process as often as you want.

Shipping and handling $10.00 Foreign orders subject to actual shipping costs.

Sorry --due to the rapid increases in the Gold price, my small profit margin, and high shipping costs I cannot do the FREE SHIPPING over $200.00
