Specimen gold is generally found and retrieved from lode gold deposits. These are usually high-grade occurences found in quartz veins, or less commonly,incalcite. Gold may also be found as specimens in, or with iron oxides, adularia (a low-temperature feldspar), sulfides, and with other silica-rich minerals such as tourmaline, amythest, or clay minerals. Gold, is a mineral and, like many other mineralscrystallizes in the isometric system. Many of the most common isometric crystal shapes such as cubes, octahedrons (pyramid-like), are very uncommon. Natural gold crystals tend to be distorted, thus it typically forms skeletal crystals, sheets, leafs, wires, and dendritic forms. Very rarely a trigon is found on the surfaces of leaf gold. This triangle appears as though stamped or engraved on the leaf gold surfaces.
Many of my gold quartz specimens contain crystalline gold.
