California Gold Bearing Quartz

California Gold Quartz is one of the rarest forms of natural gold in the world. Stunning white quartz rippled with veins of gold, it is found deep underground in only two locations on Earth – Australia and in the California foothill region of Nevada County, California. Mined through a historical gold-mining process dating to the 1850s, its origins are not far from the Tahoe region, from Grass Valley/Nevada City to Downieville along the Highway 49 corridor.
