Virtually no quartz in this gold. Each and every nugget is unique and rare. There are no two alike. The total weight of this nugget is. Alaskan placer nuggets are generally between 20.5KT and 22KT pure gold.
It's rare for nuggets to assay this high. Compare the weight in grams or ounces of the nugget to the current spot price of gold. Nuggets do fetch more than raw melted gold due to its rarity in nugget form. Remember, gold weight is most often listed in troy and metric values.The weight of gold can be measured in troy ounces, grams, or penny weight. (troy) = 31.10 g (31.1 grams). (troy) = 20 dwt (20 pennyweight). 1.55 grams = 1 dwt (1 pennyweight).
1.0 grams = 15.43 gr (15.43 grains). Be sure you know the difference between a gram and a grain! Some unscrupulous sellers will intentionally mislead you by listing the weights incorrectly with common abbreviations ("g" is for grams and "gr" is for grains). 10 GRAINS is equal to just 0.479 GRAMS. Remember it takes 15.43 grains (gr) to make just one gram (g) of gold.
And there are 31.1 grams to one troy ounce. A grain is the smallest unit of measurement of gold. Are valued differently than raw gold and gold in coin form. When evaluating natural gold, consider several factors.Gold may be valued on: weight, rarity, physical dimensions, shine, brightness or luster, purity, origin, and whether the nugget is considered collector or specimen grade. Less than 2% of all gold mined is in nugget form. Gold nuggets are now rarer than diamonds. For an average quality nugget, weight and color are your best bets for determining value. Look for bright and shiny gold - if the gold is dark, it may contain a high amount of copper or other less minerals and metals. Pure gold looks just as you would expect. The value of gold is based on the karat system, which is a 24 point scale, signifying the percentage of gold a piece of metal contains. So, if jewelry is 14KT, it is 14 out of 24 parts gold, or 58.33 percent gold.
Nuggets are usually 20.5 to 22KT purity (81% - 95%). Gold is tested either with acid or electronically. The acid test is the most reliable and commonly used method, yet can be dangerous due to the liquids used. This determines gold from base metals. This will show the general karat range, but is not completely accurate unless you are an experienced tester.Electronic testers are used often, but one thing to keep in mind is that these testers utilize a surface test and will only give you the karat of the actual spot you are testing. You will need to test in several spots to ensure that you didn't just get one particularly fine area of the nugget. No electronic tester can test gold dust or flakes. Therefore, the only true accurate means is a destructive fire assay test, which means melting the gold.

I have gained the trust in many return customers, including other sellers and plan to keep it that way. The Ophir District is where a majority of my gold was mined. It was named by miners after the wealthy land of Ophir mentioned in the Old Testament.
The area was the site of a gold rush in 1906. Ophir reached a peak population of 122 in 1910. The two main creeks in the Ophir District are Ganes and Mackie Creeks, both with assays between 87% and 94%. The village of Ophir is now abandoned, but serves as a checkpoint in the Iditerod Sled Dog Race.An airport with a single gravel runway exists at the village, built prior to 1949. It is currently in disuse and unmaintained.
There are a number of creeks near Ophir, all on the west bank of the Innoko, where gold placers were located starting about 1906. Yankee creek is the closest to the source of the river, then Ganes, Little and Spruce creek, all above Ophir creek. The original Iditarod trail ran above Ganes creek in the summer, down the Innoko valley in the winter; the current race trail goes through the old townsite, which was destroyed in a brush fire started by a camper in the 1970s, and is a rest stop. Mining still goes on at Ganes and Little creeks, and probably at Ophir creek (2006).Further downriver, on the east side, there were mining operations at Folger, Cripple, Bear and Colorado creeks. Bear creek and Colorado still are actively mined (2006). Mining of tailings was underway at Cripple in 2010. There was sporadic mining after that, with new operations starting in the 1970s.
Historic mining communities such as Chicken, Eagle, and Boundary are still alive and well here. Mining is one of the biggest economic assetsin the area. The Fortymile River is a 60-mile (97 km) tributary of the Yukon River in the U. Prospectors named the river after gold was discovered there in 1886. The name reflected the distance of the river mouth from.Fort Reliance, a former Hudsons Bay Company post upstream along the Yukon River. Miners eventually extracted more than a half-million ounces of gold from the Fortymile watershed. McQuesten and Arthur Harper, built a post at the mouth of the river.
