[Source] Gold in white quartz


#1

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good source for gold in white quartz? This
can be nuggets, small slabs, and cabouchons.

Thank you and keep shining,
Devora

Rick Martin of Art Cut Gems has a nice cabochon on his website. He
may have access to more of this material. Rick is a fine person and I
have always been happy with our dealings.

You can buy it directly from the Sixteen to One mine in California.

I might add be careful of counterfeits. I saw an example of white
quartz with gold leaf jammed into the cracks that someone got stuck
paying many $'s for. There are also some counterfeits not so easily
detected where the gold is somehow melted or otherwise inserted into
the quartz.
