In this paper we present the results of a search for nuclearites in the penetrating cosmic radiation using the scintillator and track-etch subdetectors of the MACRO apparatus. The analyses cover the range at the detector depth (3700 ) ; for the flux limit is for an isotropic flux of nuclearites, and twice this value for a flux of downgoing nuclearites.
