Gold bearing quartz is found by hard rock miners and is a natural creation. The gold in these beautiful jewelry pieces was mixed with white quartz when both were in a molten state. When they solidified these natural veins of gold were trapped within the quartz crystals.
Most of the high-grade white gold quartz comes from either the Sixteen to One Mine in Northern California or the Gympie Mine in Australia. The designs you will see on our site all come from the California mine. Interestingly enough, the name Sixteen to One was based on the ratio of 16:1 which was the formula derived in the 1600's for the number of ounces of silver in an ounce of gold.
The gold in the quartz usually runs between 18-20k. The quartz, which holds the gold, is extremely durable
