Interesting video if you want to take a look. The first four items are some amazing pieces of gold being sold at Heritage.
He who knows he has enough is rich.
I couldn't imagine the feeling of finding a 20+ lb nugget. Thanks for sharing
What incredible gold nuggets/crystals. I have never found a gold crystal while panning etc.. And only a couple of nuggets (six and seven gram)... Usually just find gold dust when panning... Cheers, RickO
A guy walks up to me at a show last weekend with one of those tiny little aluminum cases. Maybe 8"x6"x3" deep. FULL. Showed me a picture of himself out on the Alaskan tundra with a pan, FULL of what he called 'sugar'. Said the picture was old but in today's money, the pan was worth hundreds of thousands. He was, maybe 60 years old and retired.
Mined the tundra down several feet when it wasn't frozen. They'd get a bunch of 'sugar' melt it into bars and get it assayed. Gold + silver always added up to 99%. 1% something else. Then trade it for eagles.
He said every knowledgeable gold buyer could tell the origin of the gold by the color.
I've always been interested in natural history, but these specimens are quite amazing...
Those are great gold crystals. I have found dust and a couple of nuggets... never a crystal though. I really like the Heritage pictures. Cheers, RickO
Amazing! Jay-Z said if he wins the big crystal he'll attach it to a big Cuban gold chain and wear it at the next BET awards show.
If I was single I would head to Alaska. Nice Gold!
Now that's something to look at
