Purity: 999.9 ‰ fine gold
Shape: Refined granulate with a mixed grain size of approx. 0.2 - 4 mm. This casting grain is ideally suitable for jewelers, goldsmiths and manufacturers for smelting, alloying and casting and ultimately for the production of semi-finished products and finished jewelry.
Production: Granules are often an intermediate product on the way from mine gold or silver to the inished piece of jewelry. The granules are produced after melting, when the liquid fine gold or silver drips through a hot sieve into water and solidifies into small spheres in the process. The resulting gold or silver pellets look like small nuggets from the gold digger era. Goldsmiths and jewelry manufacturers can easily weigh out the required amount of fine gold or fine silver and add it to alloys to produce semi-finished products.
Certification: The fine gold contained in this product is responsibly mined by Fairtrade certified Artisanal & Small-scale Mining Organizations (ASMOs), fairly traded and certified according to the Fairtrade Standard for Gold and Associated Precious Metals for Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining of Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International e.V..

About Fairtrade: Fairtrade is a product seal that is already well known from food items such as coffee or chocolate. The Fairtrade product seal certifies gold and silver from responsible artisanal & small-scale mining organizations with the objective to bring about positive change to small-scale mining, promote sustainable social-economic development, ensure environmental protection and give everyone access to responsibly mined gold. The Fairtrade certification system is secured by independent, accredited auditing organizations such as FLOCERT. This ensures that the mining organizations comply with the requirements of the Fairtrade Standard. The entire supply chain is audited, which includes all companies working with and making claims about Fairtrade Gold and Fairtrade Silver, from the mine to the finished piece of jewelry.
Benefits for mining communities:
- A guaranteed minimum price of 95 % of the London Bullion Market price for gold and silver (Fairever even pays 97 % to 99 % for gold!)
- A premium for better living and working conditions and community development
- Investment in organisational and social development and environmental protection
