About Gold Nugget

A gold nugget is worth its weight. These are pieces of pure, 24-karat gold made by melting gold from natural ore or reclaimed jewelry. A small gold nugget may weigh only a single gram, and a large gold nugget can weigh an ounce or more. Vendors on eBay sell gold nuggets according to the locale of the gold, such as Alaska gold nuggets or Australia gold nuggets. The price of the gold nugget depends on its size and quality as well as the going rate for gold on the open market.
