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.

NATIVE SILVER!!!!! Crystalline Silver specimen from historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines. Nice piece, exhibits bright silver metallic luster, interesting texture. No Matrix remains. May have minor dark Cobalt minerals. This specimen comes from an old 1900s 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.

NATIVE SILVER!!!!! Crystalline Silver specimen from historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines. Nice piece, exhibits bright silver metallic luster, curious character. Few % Dolomite Matrix remains.This specimen comes from an old 1900s 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. Today a few of these mines are still producing Silver...but not Native Silver. Moreover, only a few foreign countries still produce Silver and its very difficult to obtain any Native specimens today.

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. It is highly recommended that a person pans this material over a large plastic, or metal wash tub so that the Gold wont be lost. This assures that the panning experience can be repeated over and over for continued enjoyment.    *NOTE  I add some crushed Chalcopyrite to the mix to make it more interesting. This Chalcopyrite is yellow colored like Gold BUT it is much lighter and will separate when panned. It also crushes to a black powder, where real Gold wont crush only flatten.

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. *NOTE I add some crushed Chalcopyrite to the mix to make it more interesting. This Chalcopyrite is yellow colored like Gold BUT it is much lighter and will separate when panned. It also crushes to a black powder, where real Gold wont crush only flatten.

 

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

Sorry --due to the rapid increases in the Gold price and my small profit margins I cannot do the FREE SHIPPING over $200.00
