Great for jewellery making or investment. This is high purity gold with an assay of 87% - 92%+. This is jeweller's grade gold and some of the prettiest I have seen!
Alaskan placer nuggets are generally 20K to 22K or 84% to 92%. These nuggets come from the Circle mining district, Alaska, Deadwood Creek. (#12 screen).
Compare the weight in grams or ounces of the nugget to the current spot price of gold. (There are 31.1 grams per troy oz.) 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 pennyweight. See chart below:
1 oz. (troy) = 31.10 g (31.1 grams)
1 oz. (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). If you see a 10gr nugget selling for $480.00 on eBay, watch out - it should be more like $31.00! 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.
Gold nuggets 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.
