Gold Ore is the most valuable ore found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The material can be melted in a smelter to form half as many gold ingots, which have additional use.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is not possible to make armor or weapons from it, although one can use it to improve the dragon priest mask Konahrik. Its primary use is making expensive jewelry.

TransmuteEdit

Gold Ores may be transmuted from iron and silver ore using the Transmute Mineral Ore Alteration spell.

Gold Ore VeinEdit

Gold Ore Veins are mined with a pickaxe to obtain Gold Ore. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem, like all other ore veins.

LocationsEdit

Gold Ore can be purchased from Blacksmith merchants, found as loot, or mined:
