HIGH-GRADE GOLD ORE These slabs, slices, and cabochons begin their lives as gold ore, in this instance,quartz with gold inside. These rich rocks arecut into slabs with a rock saw and trimmed into different shapes for later useasjewelry. Practically all 'natural' gold nuggets originate in a vein with quartz just like this. The quartz eventuallybreaks away from the goldwhich, depending onhow concentrated thecrystalline masses were tobegin with, veins produce nothing butsmall particles of gold or 'fines'. In others, the gold is even smaller or microscopic in size. These, in many cases, are the largest and richest types oflode deposits. In the modern-world of gold mining, specially-developed processes are needed to efficiently extract this fine gold. Large crystalline masses of gold eroding from vein systemsinvariablywinds up increeks, drywashes, pediments,or riverbeds and, being soft,can take on a high degree of lusterafter being polished by the movement andabrasion it's subjected to in an activewatershed. Nuggets will sometimes hang on to quartz rock for a long distance, but specimensbecome rounded and lose bits of gold asthey'recarried downstream. In many cases, you'll find native gold as flakes...all sizes of flakes, asfines, and as flour gold. Gold getsground up so fine it literally floats in water. This is known as colloidial gold.The free gold found indry placer deposits tends to retainit's original crystalline habit more than gold found in wetter climes.Here, you are more apt to recover wire gold, leaf gold, and rugged, gnarly nuggets than you are to find polished, rounded pieces of gold. There are, ultimately, many determining factors which dictate what the placer gold you find will look like. Thanks forchecking out our store. I hope you find rich ground ahead. Gold
