It is no doubt that dowsing for gold nuggets & gold in general is one of the most popular areas of interest for people approaching dowsing. We already covered How to make a dowsing rod in a previous post, so here we will focus on the process & tools involved with dowsing gold.
First things first: the Aurameter dowsing tool
The best tool to get started with gold dowsing is the aurameter. The aurameter dowsing tool was first created by Mr. V. Cameron in the mid of the XX century. In simple terms, the aurameter consists of L-rods with an additional spring element attached (see this image for reference).
Although originally designed to dowse auras, the aurameter became useful also when detecting gold. Aurameters come in different shapes and sizes, and although it is a great gold dowsing detector, it can come at a steep price.
A different approach: pendulum dowsing for gold
Whether you are dowsing for gold coins, or simply getting your head around how to locate gold with dowsing, pendulums are your second best option. Given their popularity and ease of use, pendulums tend to be one of the most favorite dowsing tools, especially for beginners. We already covered how pendulum dowsing for money works, so we invite you to go read this post before you attempt using the pendulum to dowse gold.
