Gold chalcogenides are compounds formed between gold and one of the chalcogens, elements from group 16 of the periodic table: oxygen, sulfur, selenium, or tellurium.

Natural gold tellurides, like calaverite and krennerite (AuTe2), petzite ( Ag3AuTe2), and sylvanite (AgAuTe4), are minor ores of gold (and tellurium). See telluride minerals for more information on individual naturally occurring tellurides.
