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 Slab specimen from the historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines. Specimen exhibits bright silver metallic luster. Dolomite is the matrix.

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 the 1920s the mines were essentially exhausted. Some minor mining occurred later.  Over 600 million ounces were produced from this area. Today only a few countries have historically produced Native Silver and its very difficult to obtain today.
