Crystalline gold is the rarest and most beautiful form of natural gold. California Crystalline gold is especially valued by collectors all over the world because of its bright color and unique shapes. Crystalline gold values are not based on weight but rather the shape and configuration of the piece.
Crystalline gold is very hard to photograph because it is so bright and flashy, pictures cannot begin to do the specimens true justice.
Crystalline gold is very delicate and hard to extract due to very costly mining expenses.
Millions of years ago, gold was pushed up through the earth's crust but at this particular spot, there was thermo steam at over 4000 degrees F. which also came up. This forced crystallized gold into the quartz rock. To a collector, crystallized gold is worth many times the value of gold nuggets of similar weight!
You may be aware that Crystalline gold specimen nuggets like those shown here (Original 16 to 1 mine pics) are often classified as gemstones and as such attract much higher values than the equivalent weight in bullion gold! This is very good news both for the specimen gold collector and investor.
