Gold Quartz Guide
What is Gold Quartz
Millions of years ago, gold was formed in quartz deposits by hydro-thermal pressure, deep within the earth. Gold remaining in these deposits is called Gold Bearing Quartz or Gold Quartz for short. It is extremely rare, accounting for less than 1/20th of 1% of all gold found annually.
Where is Gold Quartz Found
Gold Quartz is found in underground hard rock mines in the same areas where gold nuggets are found. In Alaska, it was first discovered in 1880 in the town Juneau. Regions of Canada, California, and Australia are also well known for Gold Quartz.
How is Gold Quartz Graded
Like other precious gemstones, Gold Quartz comes in different grades. Orocal is well know for having the highest quality authentic Gold Quartz with spectacular patterns of Gold. We grade the quartz on a few different factors being how white the stone is. The brightness of the white increases the value along with the vein of gold. The actual pattern and placement of the exquisite gold vein. In fact that vein is very pure around 23% purity.
Gold Quartz Authenticity
Some stores sell man-made imitation Gold Quartz which is fragile and frail. This leads consumers to believe its natural when it clearly is not. When buying from Destination Gold Detectors you know its authentic coming directly from Orocal the source. We extend a 110% money back Orocal Guarantee card which is called a certificate of Authenticity.
