Gold-in-Quartz is one of the world's rarest forms of natural gold. Roughly only about 1% of world’s gold production comes in this form. It is found in Alaska and Northern California.
The natural veins of gold inside quartz were formed by hydrothermal pressure deep within the earth’s surface millions of years ago. The quartz comes in various colors and sometimes contains other minerals like pyrite, silver, copper, etc. The whiter the quartz, the more desirable it is. The gold veins cannot be controlled in any way and therefore, each gemstone of gold-in-quartz is one-of-a-kind.
Glacier Gold is the registered Trade Name of our Gold in Natural Quartz. Due to the shortage of mined gold quartz, we search around the world for the whitest bull white quartz available. The quartz comes from such localities as the famous “Mother Load” in northern California and Alaska. We are the largest manufacturer, retailer and distributor of Glacier Gold.
The proprietary technology which replicates Mother Nature infusing 20kt gold into natural bull white quartz, producing only the highest grade of gold in natural quartz specimens is a patented technology. Only a limited amount of this gemstone can be produced and holds an aesthetic value much higher than the mined material. Every gemstone is a masterpiece in its own right, no two alike in the world.
We would like to thank you for purchasing a piece of history and a piece of gemstone that marks another great feat of man.
