Description

A natural gold nugget is a piece of native gold that is naturally occurring. They are found by miners in rivers, streams, ancient channels and underground riverbanks and left in their original shape. Gold nuggets are most commonly found in the alluvial deposits, which are sediments that are formed by the movement of water. However, they can be found in other deposits as well. They may also occur in close proximity to primary gold deposits like gold veins or lodes, exposed due to external weather conditions. One may also extract gold nuggets from hard rock deposits of gold, provided that the rock surrounding it can be possibly removed. The chances of finding gold nuggets in tailing pipes of old mining operations that are left behind by the gold mining dredges are also quite reasonable.

Gold nuggets are formed via a natural process. They are formed due to extremely hot water in cracks or fissures in hard rocks. They occur as large clusters of gold crystals, usually with other minerals like quartz or silver. Weathering causes the release of these gold nuggets that end up in streams as a result of the force of gravity. Gold nuggets are natural fragments of gold that have weathered out of an original vein or lode. These nuggets show clear signs of abrasive polishing, which is due to the action of the streams that they’re usually found in. Other precious metals, such as platinum, also form nuggets through a similar natural process.

Gold nuggets are found in numerous shapes, sizes, and appearances. Gold nuggets are valued differently than raw gold and gold in coin form. When evaluating natural gold consider several factors. Gold may be valued on: weight, rarity, physical dimensions, shine, brightness or lustre, purity, origin, and whether the nugget is considered collector or specimen grade. In short, the larger and more attractive a gold nugget is, the more valuable it will be.

The size, of course, is the most important factor. The bigger a gold nugget is, the more value it will hold. In fact, larger gold nuggets are extremely rare, therefore you can expect them to have higher premiums for the price per gram than smaller nuggets or small fines.

*Due to the nuggets being very difficult to reach an exact target weight because of the mesh size you may receive one or two smaller nuggets however we will try our best to get as close to the target weight as possible*
