The Oriental Gold Mine is near Alleghany, California. Historically the site has been associated with the Alleghany Mining District which is now part of the Tahoe National Forest. The site was first discovered in 1865. The Oriental Gold Mine was closed at the time of data entry with no known plans to re-open. Production size when active was considered to be medium. Mine operations consist of 2 distinct surface and underground workings extending 62.08 hectares (153.41 acres). Underground features include 1 adit and 1 incline. Subsurface depth reaches a maximum of 238 meters (780 feet) and extends 4,847 meters (15,902 feet) in length. The ore mined is composed of silver, pyrite and gold with waste material consisting primarily of quartz and talc. Information from 1991 described the ore body as having an unknown shape of unknown dimensions. The host rock in this area is quartzite. The Sierra Nevada of the Pacific Mountain System characterizes the geomorphology of the surrounding area.

 

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.This gold crystalline nugget was found in the Sierra Mining District of Northern California. 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.
