Uniqueness and rarity of Gold Nuggets

Most of the gold mined in Westland today is alluvial gold which is in the form of very fine and rare beach gold, small gold flakes and prized nugget sized pieces.

Each nugget is itself unique, with no two nuggets ever exactly the same just like snow flakes, and with only approximately 2% of all gold mined in the world today in nugget form this makes nuggets rarer to find than diamonds by volume, and means gold nuggets are highly sought after and valuable.

Not all nuggets are able to be used in the production of jewellery, for that reason jewellery nuggets are even more precious.
