Show us Ya Crystalline

Post by Guest on Fri 25 May 2012, 3:39 pm

Found this special nugget a few years back, it was only 4" deep and was beeped with
a GoldBug2 in quiet pipe clay mullock.
It was part of over 7oz of lovely Crystalline gold found in a virgin gully, most of the nuggets where
of the chevron type crystalline gold and i got over 5 times the gold price for em all.

the amazing thing about some crystalline gold pieces is that you get a nugget that in size looks like it should weigh an ounce, but then you pick it up and it weighs only about 8 grams. it's quite a surreal experience when you know gold should weigh a lot more. it's jut the way the gold is formed.

Did it take much to clean it up ? and was it a wobbly signal or a thumper

Thumping great signal,

This is only the little bit as I bonked it with the pick!
They spent 5 or so weeks in pool acid.

It took nearly 3hrs to dig out as the pick I had then didn't have much width on the scoop end.

Big hole, biggest bits I've found.

funny, these pics back up in my mind,the "genesis" (apologies to whoever authored that part, johnson, i think) of gold nuggets theory and micbrobial action in forming them, they all look completely different than quartz nuggets and "ordinary" nuggets do, more like something organic? had a hand in
