NATIVEGOLD is 1/4" wide (6 mm). U.S. 10 cent coin is 17 mm in diameter. Specimen weight: 7.3Grains (Troy) -.47 Gram Size: 9.7X7X5.4mm
Check out the pristine gold growing in this bull quartz. It hails from the Sixteen to One Mine in Sierra County, one of California's richest mining districts. In this specimen, you'll see how the metallic mineral gold looks with the vein filling (quartz) attached.Black arsenopyrite is also part of the mix. I guarantee this is the Real Deal. Back when placer-mining was my job, I always hoped, some day, to find a claim full of rocks like this. It never happened to me, but it occasionally happens to others. The fortunes of life so often come down to good fortune, luck, call it what you like. Allmy specimensshow visible gold and areauthenticgold nuggets or gold quartz specimens.

I poured through old mining dumps for years looking atorange-yellow-rustyrock through a loupe, but I neverfound a piece with visible gold. Hydrothermal solutions carrying gold and silica crystallizedintoveins of goldquartz and created the massive geothermal, hot-springs deposits found in Nevada. This specimencomes fromone of the many gold deposits discovered in The Silver State of Nevada, U.S.A.

WORLD OF GOLD QUARTZ
Welcome to the world ofnativeGold Quartz. For those of you unfamiliar with this mineral complex,GQ is, essentially, gold ore...very high-grade gold orefound in the outercrust(or mantle)ofthe earth.When geologicalconditions are just right,metallic gold-crystals form (grow), along with quartz, inside fissure-type veins as well as inside other rock formations. This occurs as boiling hot, silica and metal-bearing, hydrothermal solutions cool.It was once thought that most precious metals deposits formed beneath the ocean, but it has been discovered that geothermal hot springs situated high above sea level produce ore bodies of enormous stature. Witness the massive deposits of northern Nevada. While these types of lode deposits contain principally micron gold, fissure type lode are most often associated with large concentrations of gold. portions of these higher-grade veins to produce placergold nuggets, gold flakes, and flour gold. Vein filling or 'gold ore' from fissure veins whichretains thehost matrix rock (gangue)and harbors metalliferousgoldis one of the earth's more highly-prized gemstones. Theideal criteria for gemstone GQare hardness, color, and richness.Generalmineral compositionsof goldstone found in fissure veins (and larger ore bodies)vary from onedeposit tothe nextresulting in differently-colored matrix(host rock). Themetallic mineral, gold, occurs ina variety ofgeological formations. In modern-day mining enterprises, entire mountains are blasted down,transported and piledinto heaps, thensoaked withcyanide toleach the precious metal from the ore.Quartz veinswere, at one time, notoriouslyfamous producers of gold, but many of these prominent, fissure-type veins, such as the HomestakeMine in SouthDakota,have been mined to great depths. Since ore grades and underground geology oftenchange, deep deposits, at some point, maybecome unprofitable to mine.Water seepageoften became amonumentalproblem in many of the historic old mines of the westernU.S.Discontinuous veins sometimesslip sidewisealonga fault zone and cannot be relocated.Prices for metals canfluctuate dramatically.A great many factors influence the availability and production ofgold quartz gemstone. GQ appears to be extremely scare at this time since onlya scant handful ofmines around the world are producing this rare gemstone material.
