Rare Crystalline "Wire" Gold Nugget Specimen Weighing 6.78 Grams with Crystals and Small Piece of Quartz.
From a private claim located in Butte Montana, comes this amazing limited collection of rare specimens. The crystalized wire gold that is in bedded into the beautiful white quartz makes each piece truly one of a kind pieces. These stunning collector pieces are some of the very highest quality pieces we have ever had available to our customers.
Crystalline gold is really coarse gold in its most natural state before being exposed to the elements and eroded by the weather. This makes this form of gold highly valuable since placer gold, which is a more common form of the metal, has been weathered by glaciers, floods, rains and other erosive processes. Crystalline gold is the rarest and most beautiful form of natural gold. To a collector, crystallized gold is worth many times the value of gold nuggets of similar weight! Gold found in California is often in quartz, which is typically a hard rock, mined in vertical or horizontal shafts. This contrasts with placer (loose gold, often nuggets) and fine gold that has been recovered by hydraulic mining.
When purchased please handle with care as this form of gold with the specimen the crystals's are very delicate. It will be ship inside a jewelry box with foam to keep it safe during shipment and we recommend displaying it inside a small clear case.
