Gold with Quartz is only found in a few locations in the world. The cabs I have came fromThe mines in Northern California produce most of the world’s production of Gold Bearing Quartz. Mined 1500 to 2500 feet below the earth’s surface, this unique natural formation in found in pockets of Gold in Quartz. Millions of years ago these natural veins of gold were formed with hydrothermal pressure deep inside the earth. Very hot water was formed and this boiling water forced the quartz to pass by areas of solid gold, entwined together, the Gold bearing Quartz was forced with scalding water pressures to the earth’s surface. The quartz then cooled and solidified with the gold.
The most desirable color is the sought after “Pearl White Quartz with Gold.” A unique jewelry design can be created with this rare Gold dispersion scattered inside the White Quartz.
No two pieces of Gold Bearing Quartz are alike, each Quartz with Gold piece is a one of a kind.
