July 8, 2018.    New Arrivals Page 1  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals.  A colorful update, featuring a couple of nice Greek azurites, a nice Los Lamentos wulfenite, and a fine topaz & bixbyite combo from Utah.  

June 11, 2018  New Arrivals Page 4  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals from miniature to cabinet sizes.     Included are a mix of low priced specimens as well as some higher priced pieces, including a large cabinet specimen of crocoite. a nice cabinet size Touissit azurite, and other colorful pieces.  

May 17, 2015    New Arrivals Page 3  has  been updated with a suite of mixed specimens with the usual emphasis on color.   Several older and very hard to find in the market these days, specimens from the Jordi Povill collection are featured in this update   A colorful update.  

March 16, 2015  New Arrivals Page 2  has been updated with a suite of epidote specimens from Mali.  A gentleman from Mali brought a nice batch of epidote and prehnite specimens from the Bendougou area diggings.  The specimens were uncleaned and covered with dirt.  I took a chance and bought 15 of them to see if they would clean up.  They cleaned up beautifully with nice bright wet look luster.  They are very difficult to photograph, as the dark green crystals have a tendency to sort of blend into each other when photographed.   They are all better in hand...nice looking specimens.   As they were uncleaned, the price was quite reasonable and I hope I have passed along this savings.  The prehnite specimens had been brought over in barrels, just dumped in without padding...they were a bit too beat up to purchase.   This is the final Tucson show 2018 update.

  We are a mineral dealership located in Reno, Nevada.  We are ardent field collectors and have been dealing in and collecting minerals for many years.   You can see us in person every year at the following shows:   San Francisco show in August and the Tucson show in February. 

I have been a mineral collector since I was taken underground at the Clayton Silver mine in Idaho at the ripe old age of 9, by my grandfather, who worked there as a foreman.  My first look at the mine's working  face of solid sparkling galena had me hooked on minerals from that moment on.  Since then I went on to get my Masters' degree in Geology with a focus on economics and mineralogy.    My favorite mineral is pyromorphite.  I'm always on the lookout for pyromorphite specimens.  I am particularly interested in Canadian specimens.
