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.

A large cabinet-sized Gold specimen from the Rich Hill area in Stanton, Arizona. Specimen is a sandy, micaceous schist with three small, horizontal Quartz veinletts. The largest, uppermost veinlett shows a small amount of bright, orangish-yellow Gold. The other two veinletts do not visibly show Gold but do have a small response to a metal detector. Piece has not been cleaned with any acids or reagents. This specimen is unique because few pieces found in this area show how the Gold occurs, most occur as nuggets.  A natural, as found, specimen.
